Jenna Malinauskas (IDM) attended the Oxford Nanopore Technologies Community Meeting in New York City this past November, where scientists from the Nanopore Community met to discuss their work. The agenda included plenary and breakout sessions, lighting talks, poster sessions, and a conference dinner. "The Oxford Nanopore Community Meeting was a tremendous opportunity for me to network and learn from other scientists in my field! I learned tips and tricks to sequencing during the hands on training portion, what resources are available to me as a researcher, and how to improve my science. The opportunity to become more involved in the scientific community will benefit me throughout my career and I'm excited to attend more conferences in the future!"
