The University of Colorado Law School brought together industry leaders, top practicing lawyers, and members of the judiciary to discuss some of the most important issues facing the legal profession today. The Gathering of the Bench and Bar Conference was held Sept. 19–21.

In the basement of the Jennie Smoly Caruthers Biotechnology Building on CU-Boulder’s East Campus sits a machine that can sequence roughly 6 billion DNA segments in about a week. The machine, an Illumnia HiSeq 2000, is the centerpiece of the BioFrontiers Institute’s Next-Gen Sequencing Facility, and it has become a critical piece of equipment for researchers across campus. But it’s also an important resource for the Front Range’s thriving biotech industry, which routinely relies on the facility for sequencing work.
