Understand More About Next-Generation Sequencing at ELA 2012
News Apr 30, 2012
Select Biosciences has announced that Next-Generation Sequencing Automation will form one of the eight available conference streams.
A resounding success at ELA in 2011 and an ever growing area of interest in present day research Next-Generation Sequencing will take an important place in this year’s programme.
With participation from some of the industry’s leading experts in this field including Wilhelm Ansorge of ETH Lausanne and Vanessa Hayes of the J Craig Venter Institute, this stream aims to provide attendees with enhanced knowledge on the advances in next generation sequencing including sequencing platforms and 3rd generation sequencing technologies.
The ELA conference will run from 30th-31st May at the Congress Center Hamburg, Germany.
Registered delegates will have access to all eight conference streams and a topical exhibition, showcasing the latest developments in automated workflows and instruments.
Back in 2009, researchers identified a herd of Awassi sheep suffering from "day blindness".

After identifying the genetic basis of this blindness, researchers have now successfully used gene therapy to restore their daytime vision.READ MORE
