6th Oxford Global Annual Next Generation Sequencing Congress 2014 London

  • Conference Call
  • Oxford Global Con­fer­ences Ltd is proud to present the 6th Annual Next Gen­er­a­tion Sequenc­ing Con­gress tak­ing place on 20 – 21 Novem­ber 2014 at QEII Con­fer­ence Cen­tre, Lon­don, UK. It is co-​located with Sin­gle Cell Analy­sis Con­gress.

    Over two days, the con­gress will attract over 400 experts from both acad­e­mia and pharma senior prac­ti­tion­ers, work­ing in all aspects of next gen­er­a­tion sequenc­ing includ­ing Per­son­alised Health­care /​Clin­i­cal /​Diag­nos­tic Devel­op­ment, Genomics, Epi­ge­net­ics, DNA Methy­la­tion, RNA pro­fil­ing, Data Analy­sis, Human Metage­nomics, Sin­gle Cell Genomics and Tran­scrip­tomics from the UK, Europe and America.

    Over the two days, the con­fer­ence pro­gramme con­sists of world-​class keynote addresses, aca­d­e­mic and indus­try led pre­sen­ta­tions and panel dis­cus­sions, cre­at­ing an inter­ac­tive plat­form for high-​level sci­en­tific dis­cus­sions. Hear case study pre­sen­ta­tions from our lead­ing speak­ers from Clin­i­cal Research Insti­tu­tions, Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal com­pa­nies and Food/​Nutrition companies.

    This pres­ti­gious event pro­vides a forum for prac­ti­tion­ers and researchers to learn more about key solu­tions being pro­vided to their indus­try, analy­sis of cur­rent tech­nolo­gies and their appli­ca­tions, net­work with their peers and address key indus­try con­cerns in a pro­fes­sional yet relaxed environment.


    In keep­ing with Oxford Global’s highly suc­cess­ful life sci­ences series, an expert panel of 60 speak­ers will present a full con­fer­ence pro­gramme cov­er­ing the fol­low­ing key top­ics including:

    Sub­mit a poster

    For atten­dees inter­ested to sub­mit 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 from the phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal indus­try and aca­d­e­mic institutions.

    How to sub­mit your abstract

    Please submit:

    • Poster title, abstract (200 words or less),
    • prin­ci­pal author, organisation
    • mail­ing address, email, tele­phone, fax
    • addi­tional authors
