I’ve been several times to the annual Drosophila Research Conference put on by the Genetics Society of America. It’s a remarkable meeting, bringing together around 1500 fly researchers for talks, panels, and perhaps most importantly, ad hoc discussions about their work. As a group, they are very open about their research, sharing, among other things, flies, techniques, and both their successes and failures. This year in San Diego, however, FlySorter will be there as an official vendor, with a proper booth and all.
We’ll have a bunch of products on display, including our new image capture prototype that we’re calling the Fly Photobooth:
Please do stop by booth #213 and say hi!
