NGS 2015 Glasgow, the fourth biannual UK Next Generation Sequencing Conference from Biotexcel, will take place on 22nd & 23rd April and be preceded by a one day NGS Bioinformatics Workshop on 21st April. This event comes in partnership with the NHS West of Scotland Genetics Service and the University of Glasgow’s Polyomics research facility and will be held in the heart of Glasgow city centre.
As with previous events we will again bring together key opinion leaders from NGS clinical diagnostic labs as well as those from research backgrounds so that our virtual ideas hub continues to flourish and act as a catalyst to help develop collaborations. This year will see a strong focus on Bioinformatics with an entire day dedicated to a workshop that will be run at the University of Glasgow and cover the steps from raw NGS data all the way to Assembly (eg, raw data, QC, mapping of reads, visualising DNAseq and RNAseq data, understanding the workflows).
In addition to bioinformatics we will take a look at wet lab QC issues involving the variable parts of the workflows as well as the newer application areas that are being performed or trickling through to diagnostic labs. Panel debates will allow our experts and attendees to interactively discuss many issues of interest such as the benefits of exome sequencing versus whole genome sequencing and more.
POSTER SUBMISSION: We welcome poster presentation at our events. If you have some material to present, please send us an abstract by 3rd April. This will be reviewed by our scientific committee and if approved you will receive a 15% discount off the registration fee.
If you would like to submit a poster, please send us an abstract using our CONTACT US FORM
