The conference organized by the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) is the International Congress of Human Genetics (ICHG) and is one of the largest of its kind. This year it was held in Boston, MA, and it was great to hear talks about everything genetics, network, and explore a new city.
This is the view of the company booths in the main exhibition hall of the Convention Center. The thousands of posters are around the edge of the room. This give you an idea about the scale of the event! All throughout the day, there are talks going on simultaneously in 10 rooms, and it would take you 15 minutes to walk from one room to the other, if they were at opposite sides of the building.
Besides the fun, I learned a lot, and now I feel extra motivated about getting back to research!
