3rd Annual Next Generation Sequencing Asia Congress 2013

  • Conference Call
  • Oxford Global Con­fer­ences Ltd are proud to present the 3rd Annual Next Gen­er­a­tion Sequenc­ing Asia Con­gress 2013, tak­ing place on 8 & 9 Octo­ber, 2013 in Sin­ga­pore.

    The Asian NGS indus­try has ben­e­fited from increased invest­ment in sequenc­ing and genomics, devel­op­ment of new sequenc­ing appli­ca­tions and the re-​location of inter­na­tional experts to Sin­ga­pore sci­ence hubs. This two-​day event will bring together experts from Europe, the USA, Asia and Aus­trala­sia to share case stud­ies and dis­cuss the plat­forms capa­ble of rev­o­lu­tion­is­ing the way we work.

    Day 1 of the event cov­ers the lat­est devel­op­ments in sequenc­ing tech­nolo­gies, data analy­sis meth­ods and Next Gen­er­a­tion Sequenc­ing plat­forms. Pre­sen­ta­tions will also cover the bioin­for­mat­ics chal­lenges posed by these new tech­nolo­gies, along with cor­re­spond­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties cre­ated in the plant and ani­mal genomics sector.

    On Day 2 our expert speak­ers will dis­cuss clin­i­cal appli­ca­tions for NGS tech­nolo­gies and the role of genomics in can­cer research, per­son­alised med­i­cine and diag­nos­tics. Del­e­gates will also hear from those work­ing at the fore­front of epi­ge­netic and ana­lyt­i­cal genomic research, as they dis­cuss chro­mo­some dynam­ics, epige­nomics and transcriptomics.
