GTC is proud to present the 3rd Next Generation Sequencing
Conference to be held on June 20-21 in San Francisco, CA. With the rapid
evolution of sequencing technology and its implementation into multiple
applications, there is a continued need for discussion: How do we apply the
technology to our own research? What do we do with all of this sequencing data?
What are the best ways to run a sequencing lab?
The 3rd Next Generation Sequencing Conference will provide a forum for industry,
academic and government leaders in the field to present on the current and
future applications of the technology as well as share strategies, best
practices and protocols on the usage of the tool. Hot topics that will be
covered include clinical diagnostics development, the microbiome and infectious
disease applications, bioinformatics and methods of data analysis, nanopore
sequencing and other future sequencing technologies on the horizon. Attend this
conference to network with fellow scientists and researchers and learn about
sequencing technologies that are available, how they are being applied and what
are the strategies for handling the data.
conference is part of the larger
Nucleic Acid Summit,
which includes the Bioinformatics & Data Management Strategies
pre-conference workshop on June 19th
and is co-located with the
