Revolutionizing Next-Generation Sequencing (2nd edition)
Enabled by better cost-performance curves and novel technology developments, Next-Generation Sequencing technologies keep on pushing the boundaries of our scientific knowledge. The NGS-field is still expanding and to take advantage of new opportunities offered by these technologies in life sciences, VIB Conferences will host the second edition of Revolutionizing Next-Generation Sequencing: Tools and Technologies.
After a sold-out 2015 edition, RNGS17 will look at emerging tools and approaches for:
- Large-scale Sequencing
- Applications for Current and Emerging Next-Generation Sequencing Platforms
- Single-Cell Genomics
- Next-Generation Transcriptomics technologies
- Ultra-long reads and Assembly
- Computational genomics and data analysis
In addition to a great scientific and technology program, the conference will provide ample opportunities to network during the breaks, poster sessions, the conference dinner and our ‘Meet the Expert’ session!
You can find more info about the sold out first edition here.
