NGS Tech & Applications Congress: UK
Date: December 4 - 5, 2017
Venue: Novotel London West, London, UK
Global Engage is pleased to announce the 2017 NGS Tech & Applications Congress, as part of our 4Bio event, which will be held on 4-5 December at the Novotel London West in central London. The event will be co-located with the 5th qPCR & Digital PCR Congress, the 3rd Microfluidics Congress and the 4th Synthetic Biology Congress.
Over the past decade, advances in sequencing technology and significant cost reductions have been instrumental to genomics research. Scientists are continuing to develop new sequencing techniques, tools and methods of analysis, and subsequently discovering new applications in medical research. NGS has already revolutionised the way genomics research is conducted, and with the advent of new methods such as nanopore, it is an exciting time to be in the field.
Attracting experts working in all areas of genomic sequencing, the conference will examine the latest developments in technologies and techniques being used for progressing medical research, the medical applications of sequencing, as well as the challenges and future of the field. Should you be an expert in developing sequencing technologies, or a scientist using NGS to further medical research, the conference will be an excellent opportunity to learn, share, discuss and engage with the most current NGS-based research and technology. During the two-day conference, there will be networking breaks to promote interaction with your peers, expert led case study presentations.
The 2017 agenda will be ready in late May 2017. If you are interested in presenting or would like to propose a new contact, please contact us.
