Scenes from GSAC 2002


Low attendance didn''t seem to stifle the fun at TIGR’s 14th Annual Genome Sequencing and Analysis Conference, which GT has adopted as the venue for the GT All-Stars Awards Bash. At a soirée atop the Prudential Tower on Oct. 3, GT hosted some 500 guests for our annual awards banquet, where the massive All-Stars trophies were handed out, and the October issue of GT was unveiled. PerkinElmer, Gene Logic, HP, and Iobion co-sponsored the party. The following pages feature shots from the party, the GSAC show floor, and TIGR''s annual celebration evening.
