It gives me great pleasure to invite you on behalf of Human Genetics department of Leiden University Medical Center to Leiden for the second edition of SMRTLeiden Meeting from May 2 - 4, 2017. We are looking forward to welcoming you to the beautiful city of Leiden and we are very excited to be a host to such an outstanding lineup of speakers highlighting their inspirational and breakthrough achievements enabled by SMRT Sequencing technology. This forum is for all scientists active in fields such as genetics, transcriptomics and epigenetics to review latest developments and explore potential collaborations. I, for one, am certainly looking forward to various opportunities to meet, brainstorm, and exchange ideas and I hope you are too. Join your colleagues for a great meeting in Leiden in May, 2017.
