Date: Wednesday, October 12th
Where: Les 3 Brasseurs, St-Paul, 105 St-Paul St. E., Montreal, Quebec
The world’s top scientists and researchers in human genetics will gather in Montreal next week to chase down plates of “poutine” with pints of La Fin Du Monde while discussing the value of whole genome sequencing, debating the merits of gene patenting and showing off some of the newest breakthroughs in this rapidly changing field.
To ensure that everyone at ICHG/ASHG 2011 stays hydrated, 23andMe invites attendees to a social mixer* at Les 3 Brasseurs, a microbrewery in Montreal. If that’s not enticing enough, we’ll also be giving away a free exome sequence to one lucky individual!
(Of course, you can also count yourself lucky simply by being in the presence of a bunch of chatty and genetically good-looking 23andMe scientists.)
Here’s the low-down on the giveaway rules:
- The drawing will be held on Wednesday, October 12th between 8:30 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. E.T.
- You’ve got to be 18 or older (but you’ve got to be 18 to drink in Quebec anyway so no underage party crashers).
- No purchase necessary and you don’t have to be an existing 23andMe customer.
For more information about the drawing, view the official rules here, contact Event Officials at the drawing, or send your request and a stamped, self-addressed envelope to 23andMe ASHG Exome Giveaway, 23andMe, Inc., 1390 Shorebird Way, Mountain View, CA 94043.
