Over 200 participants gathered in Providence, RI for CHI’s Next-Generation Sequencing conferences to investigate the expanding applications of Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS), and hear unique perspectives from a variety of researchers, engineers, biostatisticians, and software developers involved in NGS data analysis.
Delegates enjoyed creating their own agendas by moving between the tracks and choosing the sessions that best fit their research and networking needs. The well attended short courses provided additional learning experiences and interaction with colleagues, peers and industry leaders.
View our video full of highlights and impromptu interviews, to hear first-hand what thought leaders are saying about the use of NGS over the past two years, as well as their perspective on where NGS will take us in the future.
Thank you to all of our speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors for your support and contribution, and to all the delegates for your participation. The success of this event is largely due to the dedicated participants that return with us year after year.

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.
