|Sujet: NGS 2014 Sheffield: from Research to the Clinic Conference 11th to 12th November 2014 Sheffield, United Kingdom Mar 12 Aoû 2014 - 12:20|| |
Biotexcel are proud to announce the 2nd Annual Winter Next Generation Sequencing conference to be held at the Halifax Hall venue in Sheffield on 11th & 12th November 2014. This event follows on from NGS 2013 Manchester and takes a step forward in the much requested joining up of presentations from University NGS research groups and Hospital NGS clinical diagnostics units. Indeed this event is the first of its kind in the UK as it is held in partnership together with Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust and the University of Sheffield.
Our characteristic genomics events have traditionally taken research based Next Generation Sequencing applications and brought them into a clinical diagnostics theme so that groups from both backgrounds can discuss new areas of collaborations and network together. At this second winter conference, we will bring together groups from both of these backgrounds to discuss not just the usual bottlenecks in NGS but also the cutting edge discoveries in the popular application areas such as whole genome, exome, and RNA sequencing. An emphasis will also be placed on data quality with presentations showing the quality aspects across laboratories. Data analysis is a key bottleneck that will be addressed with some unique and novel insights.
The recurring positive feedback from attendees to our previous NGS events has highlighted the networking opportunities which have resulted in productive collaborations. The intimate atmosphere of our Sheffield NGS event will provide a relaxed setting for informal networking to take place. This will enable research, diagnostics & commercial organizations to discuss and exchange ideas, expertise and set up collaborations to improve their current research, products and services.
Join us for a truly broad cross-section of presentations from renowned leaders in their areas including, Ann Dalton, Anneke Seller, Mike Quail, Simon Patton, Magnus Rattray and many more.
