SELECTBIO is pleased to present the Advances in Next-Gen Sequencing (NGS) & Big Data conference, which will take place at the Fira Barcelona. Featuring an array of leading international speakers, this event aims to provide you with an insight into the latest developments in next-gen sequencing technologies and applications.

Hot topics to be covered include the growing use of NGS in the clinic and in diagnostics, as well as developments in sequencing platforms and methods. Focus will also be given to novel solutions to the NGS data deluge, addressing issues such as storage and analysis. Attending this event will provide you with many opportunities to network with peers, helping you to build new relationships and optimise your workflow.

Running alongside the Advances in NGS & Big Data conference will be the ELA exhibition, covering the latest technological advances and associated services from leading solution providers within this field. Registered delegates will also have access to the following co-located conference tracks, ensuring a cost effective trip: Advances in qPCR & dPCR, High Content Analysis, Advances in Automation & Robotics and Advances in Cellular Assays & Cell Culture

Keynote Speakers:

Wilhelm Ansorge, Professor, Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne
John Quackenbush, Professor, Dana Farber Cancer Institute



Registration is open.

You can present your research on a poster while attending the meeting. Poster Submission Deadline: 02 May 2014

Decoding the Genome of the Olive Tree
A team of scientists from three Spanish centers has sequenced, for the first time ever, the complete genome of the olive tree. This work will facilitate genetic improvement for production of olives and olive oil, two key products in the Spanish economy and diet.
Four Newly-Identified Genes Could Improve Rice
A Japanese research team have applied a method used in human genetic analysis to rice and rapidly discovered four new genes that are potentially significant for agriculture. These findings could influence crop breeding and help combat food shortages caused by a growing population.
What Makes a Good Scientist?
It’s the journey, not just the destination that counts as a scientist when conducting research.
Biomarkers That Could Help Give Cancer Patients Better Survival Estimates Discovered
UCLA research may also help scientists suppress dangerous genetic sequences.
Mobile Laboratories Help Track Zika Spread Across Brazil
Researchers from the University of Birmingham are working with health partners in Brazil to combat the spread of Zika virus by deploying a pair of mobile DNA sequencing laboratories on a medical ‘road trip’ through the worst-hit areas of the country.
How “Silent” Genetic Changes Drive Cancer
The researchers found that EXOSC2 expression is enhanced in metastatic tumors because their cells have increased levels of a tRNA called GluUUC.
‘Jumping Gene’ Took Peppered Moths To The Dark Side
Researchers from the University of Liverpool have identified and dated the genetic mutation that gave rise to the black form of the peppered moth, which spread rapidly during Britain’s Industrial Revolution.
Benchtop Automation Trends
Gain a better understanding of current interest in and future deployment of benchtop automated systems.
How Did The Giraffe Get Its Long Neck?
Clues about the evolution of the giraffe’s long neck have now been revealed by new genome sequencing.
Big Data Can Save Lives
The sharing of genetic information from millions of cancer patients around the world could be key to revolutionising cancer prevention and care, according to a leading cancer expert from Queen's University Belfast.
