NGS 2016 Glasgow, the 3rd annual Next Generation Sequencing conference took place in Scotland on 27th & 28th April 2016 at the IET Teacher building in the heart of Glasgow city centre. This event was held in partnership with NHS West of Scotland Genetics Service and the University of Glasgow’s Polyomics research facility. In conjunction with the conference there was a one day workshop on 26th April that provided Next Generation Sequencing data analysis training to those working in the wetlab who wanted to be able to analyse the data and understand the data analysis workflows.Find out more »
Super Cool NGS Things and Funky Clinical Stuff The 7th Oxford Genomics Forum was a 1-day event which took place on the Wednesday 13th July at the University of Oxford’s Old Road Campus.
This Forum was held in partnership between the Oxford Genomics Centre and Biotexcel as a platform to bring together genomic researchers from diverse areas to discuss the latest advances, technologies, tools and directions in Genomics.
The 3rd annual Circulating Biomarkers 2016 conference took place in Dundee in partnership with Edinburgh-Dundee ECMC and the Abertay Bioscience Society at Abertay University. In just the last couple of years circulating biomarkers have gained traction as a cutting edge technology for drug development and medicine. EU Policy makers and grant funding bodies have been championing the desire to break the translational bottle-neck. As researchers focus more on breaking the translational bottle neck they have started to look more closely at the kinds of biomarkers which will enable this. These circulating biomarkers such as circulating DNA (ctDNA/cfDNA/cftDNA), miRNA/microRNA, circulating tumour cells & exosomes are indeed useful and we have been covering them in the last few conferences with some great data and presentations from opinion leaders in the respective areas. We have heard from researchers about how they perform their biased and unbiased discovery on these circulating biomarkers and then validate and move them into the clinic so that the blood biopsy tests can be realized.Find out more »
