Next-generation sequencing (NGS) has emerged as now-generation sequencing and has moved from the testing stage into production. Platform providers of second-generation systems have increased read length and throughput of their instruments, facilitated paired-end sequencing, and lowered the cost of sequencing. End-users from the basic and biomedical research community are making discoveries as rapidly as the bases are being sequenced. All agree, however, that with the implementation and maturation of any new technology there is a balancing act of cost-quality-quantity. What is your sequencing goal? The potential applications are as numerous as the samples to be analyzed. Each NGS platform is optimized for specific sequencing applications. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Fourth Annual Now-Generation Sequencing offers an unparalleled opportunity to compare and contrast the NGS platforms to best suit your research needs.

Sessions topics include:

  • Targeted Sample Enrichment
  • Expanding the Envelope of Applications
  • Deep Sequencing
  • What is the Real Cost of Sequencing Plenary Kenote Session
  • Tech Expo Platform Showcase
  • RNA-Seq and Transcriptome Sequencing
  • Third Generation Technologies:  Single Molecule and Single Cell Analysis
