GTC is proud to present the third installment of our next-generation sequencing conference to be held on June 19-21 in San Francisco, CA. With the rapid evolution of sequencing technology and its implementation into multiple applications, there is a continuing need for discussion: How do we apply the technology to our own research? What do we do with all of this sequencing data? What are the best ways to running a sequencing lab?

The 3rd Next-Generation Sequencing conference will provide a forum for industry, academic and government leaders in the field to present on the current and future applications of the technology as well as share strategies, best practices and protocols on the usage of the tool. Hot topics that will be covered include clinical diagnostics development, the microbiome and infectious disease applications, bioinformatics and methods of data analysis, nanopore sequencing and other future sequencing technologies on the horizon. Attend this conference to network with fellow scientists and researchers and learn about sequencing technologies that are available, how they are being applied and what are the strategies for handling the data.

Sessions for 2013’s agenda are:

Applications of NGS Platforms

Drug Discovery & Clinical Applications 

Bioinformatics & Data Management Strategies 

Human Metagenomics & the Microbiome 

RNA Sequencing

Nanopores & Future Sequencing Technologies
