Digital Course: Next Generation Sequencing, an Overview of Technologies, Applications, and Analysis Strategies

CONFERENCE SERIES: Technology and Tools for Life Sciences 

Recorded at: NGX: Applying Next-Generation Sequencing  

2013 DTD SC3 DVD CoverAbout this Product: 

If you are confused by the evolving, rapidly changing, and dynamic nature of the Next Generation Sequencing market, then this is the course for you. This course will provide you with a comprehensive, clear outline of the various sequencing technologies currently available, their best suited applications, and which analysis strategies go with what applications in order to get the best answer from the data.

Agenda At A Glance: 

  • How the sequencing strategies/chemistries of the various high throughput platforms differ
  • What are the strengths and weaknesses of the different platform sequencing strategies
  • What are the applications available from each of the platforms, and what is required for their proper analysis
  • How do I get the most from my DNA-Seq, RNA-Seq, and ChIP-Seq data

Matthias ScherfBiography: Matthias Scherf is Managing Director of Genomatix Software GmbH. He studied informatics and did his Ph.D. and post-doctoral work at the GSF (Gesellschaft für Umwelt und Gesundheitsforschung) in Munich. He joined Genomatix in the year 2000, first as Head of Research in Bioinformatics and since 2009 as Managing Director. Genomatix offers solutions and services for the entire course of sequence analysis from first level mapping to integrating multiple results with copious high-quality data background. Their technologies for visualisation and interpretation enable scientists worldwide to turn their data into meaningful results.


About the Conference:

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) has expanded our fundamental understanding of genomics, mutation, gene function and regulation, by delivering fast, precise, and large volumes of data. As the cost of sequencing declines, use in academic, biotech, medical, pharmaceutical, and ag-bio labs expands, paving the way for the creation of innovative new areas for bioresearch. Still, the question remains of how best to balance cost, quantity and quality when choosing a sequencing platform or service. Cambridge Healthtech Institute's NGx: Applying Next-Generation Sequencing investigates the expanding applications of NGS. Learn from experienced researchers from large sequencing centers, core laboratories, and specialized groups as they share their practical knowledge, real-world experiences and solutions.
