Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)Congress on November 2009

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

    • Next Generation Sequencing High Throughput Sequencing Platforms: Implementation and Technology Considerations
      Sequencing Applications Considerations
    • Applying Next-Generation Sequencing to Cancer and Medical Genetics and Discovery Research
    • Next Generation Sequencing Technologies and Bioinformatic Analysis Tools
    • Data Analysis
    • Data Management and Storage Strategies
  • Oxford Global Conferences is proud to present Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)Congress, which is to be held on the 16th & 17th November 2009 in London. The congress is held in conjunction with qPCR Congress( www.qpcr-congress.com).

     

    Next-generation sequencing technologies are revolutionizing biology by allowing for genome-wide transcription factor binding-site profiling, transcriptome sequencing, and more recently, whole-genome resequencing. These technologies will provide a genome-wide sequence readout as an endpoint to applications ranging from chromatin immunoprecipitation, mutation mapping and polymorphism discovery to noncoding RNA discovery.

     

    Over the 2 days, the conference provides an overview of the current options of next-generation sequencing platforms, technologies, applications and the newest computational tools for the analysis of next-generation sequencing data.

     

    The event will attract over 120 senior-level decision makers working in bioinformatics & data management, next generation sequencing, discovery, RNA profiling, molecular genomics, and clinical & diagnostics development from the UK, Europe and US.  This prestigious event provides a forum for practitioners and researchers to learn more about key solutions being provided to their industry, network with their peers, and address key industry concerns through a series of cutting edge conference presentations in a professional yet relaxed environment.

     

    THE EVENT

    In keeping with Oxford Global’s highly successful life sciences series, an expert panel of 25 speakers will present a full conference programme covering the following key topics include:

     

    Day 1 – 16th November

     

    Day 2 – 17th November
