Use of Nextgen to Study Circulating Biomarkers
Conference Recording Mar 10, 2014
About the SpeakerAfter
I obtained a degree as Biotechnological Engineer I joined the research
group Yeast Genetics at the IPK Gatersleben as PhD student to work on
the molecular characterisation of a tobacco protein involved in
plant-pathogen interactions. Later I joined within the same institute
the Plant Reproductive Biology group as a Post-doc and was crucially
involved in the establishment and improvement of methods of
Agrobacterium-mediated gene transfer to barley, wheat and triticale.
AbstractA paradigm shift has happened with drastic cost reduction and improvements in the workflow and accuracy of Nextgen sequencing. In general, Nextgen is replacing several classical clinical tests by improved accuracy, enhanced safety for patient, and lower cost of test. In this talk, recent progress in Nextgen sequencing will be discussed. Furthermore, several examples will be provided on how Nextgen is being implemented to study circulating biomarkers in biological fluids.
