The aim of our Next Generation Sequencing conference is to address key issues being faced by clinical genetics laboratories as well as other labs that are implementing Next Generation Sequencing (NGS). Whilst NGS is a very powerful technology that holds the promise of unlocking the secrets of DNA sequences on a large scale, its implementation has not been as smooth as anticipated.Find out more »
It was a great pleasure for us to hold our Next Generation Sequencing conference: “NGS 2014 Dundee: Exomes, Genomes and Transcriptomes in Clinical Diagnostics”. This diagnostic conference and workshops took place this year at the Hannah Maclure Centre which is part of the Abertay University in Dundee, UK on the 7th & 8th May 2014 with a scientific committee consisting of experts in the area (Dr Paul Denny, Dr Darren Grafham, Dr Simon Patton, Dr Magnus Rattray). This conference looked at advances in Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) applications important to human disease. Invited speakers came from academic research and from clinical genetics labs that provide diagnostic services to patients.Find out more »

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 »
