Dear Colleague,

We invite you to attend the 6th Next Generation Sequencing Conference, which is part of The Genomics & Big Data Summit and takes place on May 25-26, 2016 in Boston, MA.

Next generation sequencing has made it possible to obtain genetic information from biological systems by rapid and inexpensive methods. Therefore, the ability to analyze genomes and protein interactions has been accomplished. Now, the branches of next generation sequencing has expanded to single cell analyses, RNA sequencing approaches, and discoveries in the micrbiome space. The race for faster, cheaper, and higher precision sequencing approaches has been a constant goal for researchers so that there are improved methods in this field.

This meeting will provide attendees with a better understanding of developments in new next generation sequencing technologies alongside clinical applications. There will be a focus on medical sequencing for patient characterization in targeted therapies through vast methods like single cell and RNA sequencing. Implications for how diseases should be treated will be discussed through the examination of data produced from reputable assays.


Sessions include:
    I. Current and Emerging Sequencing Technologies
    II. Metagenomics and the Microbiome
    III. Single Cell Analysis
    IV. RNA Sequencing, DNA Sequencing
    V. Clinical Diagnostic Sequencing
    VI. Regulatory challenges related to NGS data and application


We hope to see you there!

Best regards,

The 2016 Advisory Committee
