5th Annual Oxford Global Next Generation Sequencing Asia Congress 2015 Singapore

  • Conference Call
  • Oxford Global Conferences are proud to present the 5th Annual Next Generation Sequencing Asia Congress taking place on 13th & 14th October, 2015 in Singapore.

    NGS is one of the fastest growing segments within genomic research. Cheaper and quicker sequencing is triggering ground breaking discoveries in the field, having a striking impact on cancer, rare diseases, immunotherapy and the future development of genomic therapies. The Asia-​Pacific region is home to some of the world’s largest sequencing facilities making Singapore the ideal location for networking and idea-​sharing opportunities with peers. This two-​day congress will bring together key researchers from Asia, Australasia, the USA and Europe to discuss the growing opportunities of this expanding market.

    On day one presentations will also cover case studies of NGS in therapeutics and genomic medicine including cancer, immunotherapy, infectious diseases and biomarkers.

    On day two distinguished speakers will discuss clinical applications for NGS technologies and the role of genomics in personalised medicine, rare diseases and diagnostics. Delegates will hear from those working at the forefront of bioinformatics, as they discuss solutions to the most recent challenges of data integration, analysis, processing & big data.

    The 5th Annual Next Generation Sequencing Asia Congress will be co-​located with the 3rd Annual Single Cell Analysis Asia Congress focussing on sample preparation, single cell isolation, imaging technologies, genomics, transcriptomics, and proteomics. The Single Cell congress will also showcase the latest insights into single cell analysis for CTCs, rare cell diseases and understanding tumour heterogeneity.
