4th Annual Oxford Global Next Generation Sequencing Asia Congress 2014

  • Conference Call
  • Oxford Global Con­fer­ences Ltd are proud to present the 4th Annual Next Gen­er­a­tion Sequenc­ing Asia Con­gress 2014, tak­ing place on 7th & 8th of Octo­ber, 2014 in Sin­ga­pore.

    The Asian NGS indus­try presents a key oppor­tu­nity for novel tech­nol­ogy devel­op­ment and inno­va­tion thanks to increased invest­ment and the trans­for­ma­tion of Sin­ga­pore into an inter­na­tional sci­ence hub. This two-​day event will see col­lab­o­ra­tion between experts from Asia, Aus­trala­sia, Europe and the USA to solve key chal­lenges and embrace emerg­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties in NGS.

    Day 1 of the event cov­ers the lat­est devel­op­ments in NGS and microar­ray tech­nol­ogy, sam­ple prepa­ra­tion meth­ods and agrige­nomics. Pre­sen­ta­tions will also cover third gen­er­a­tion sequenc­ing tech­nol­ogy, stan­dard­ized work­flow oppor­tu­ni­ties and cutting-​edge tech­niques for plant and ani­mal genome research.

    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 bioin­for­mat­ics, as they dis­cuss solu­tions to the chal­lenges of data man­age­ment and stor­age, as well as new oppor­tu­ni­ties for data shar­ing and collaboration.

    The 4th Annual Next Gen­er­a­tion Sequenc­ing Asia Con­gress will be co-​located with the 2nd Annual Sin­gle Cell Genomics and Tran­scrip­tomics Asia Con­gress.


    In keep­ing with Oxford Global’s highly suc­cess­ful con­gress series, an expert panel of over 40 speak­ers will present a full con­fer­ence pro­gramme cov­er­ing the top­ics out­lined below:

    Sub­mit a poster

    For atten­dees inter­ested in sub­mit­ting a poster, there are oppor­tu­ni­ties now avail­able. Your poster pre­sen­ta­tion will be located in the exhi­bi­tion room for two days along­side other posters from senior sci­en­tists work­ing in indus­try and academia.

    How to sub­mit your poster

    We will require:

    • Poster title
