AGBT broke up a couple of weeks ago and I've failed to write anything here so far. It was frustrating not attending, but not registering for a meeting in February seemed prudent given the pattern of COVID waves - I hadn't considered (nor would have wanted to bank on) AGBT organizers reacting so well and rescheduling the meeting. It sounds like a number of attendees did catch the virus at the meeting -- though I'm presumably still quite protected by my infection a month earlier. Anyways, I'm going to organize this around one to two questions that hover in my head for the different sequencing providers. AGBT also had a strong spatial angle, but I feel ill-equipped to cover that in the absence of being on the scene -- I don't work with spatial data and so don't have a deep feel for it. As always, please flag me here or on Twitter or by email for any errors I made -- or any juicy sequencing company gossip you wish to share!

A bit over a year ago Google made one of their dreaded announcements that they would be slowly killing off one of their acquisitions, in this case FeedBurner. Well over a thousand of you have been using FeedBurner to follow me via email. Follow.it has a wonderful free plan that can take over all of the previous functionality and I could just import the old subscription list
