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
