The pandemic has brought little good, but one thing I find really great. Nowadays you can attend awesome seminars all over the world or get world-class scientists to talk to you much more easily than at a congress.
Last week, the Society for Human Genetics (GfH) hosted an online talk with Jay Shendure. Almost 200 participants listened, among them many colleagues of mine from previous years. Although, you can't talk to each other like at a congress, but there is enough time for a short "hi" via chat.
Jay Shendure's lecture was fantastic, the subsequent discussion was also very terrific and one can only guess how many exciting findings on the "function of our genome" we can expect in the next few years.
