This Next Generation Sequencing Symposium on 20th November 2014 is a one day event organized in partnership between Biotexcel and Odense University Hospital in Denmark.
This inaugural event will bring together key opinion leaders from laboratories in Nordic countries who are using Next Generation Sequencing in research and diagnostics. In laboratories around the world, NGS is being implemented for routine clinical multi-gene screening but also in newer emerging application areas such as transcriptomics and epigenetics. At this event speakers will present overview of their datasets in relation to NGS Panels, Exome Sequencing, Mitochondrial Sequencing as well as talking about newer application areas and established workflows. Labs will be able to compare and contrast the data coming from different NGS platform using different bioinformatic processes and also compare QC procedures.Find out more »
Our Next Generation Sequencing conferences have traditionally taken research based Next Generation Sequencing applications and brought them into a clinical diagnostics theme so that groups from both backgrounds can discuss new areas of collaborations and network together.Find out more »
