Next-generation sequencing (NGS) has expanded our fundamental understanding of genomics, mutation, gene function and regulation, by delivering fast, precise, and large volumes of data. As the cost of sequencing declines, use in academic, biotech, medical, pharmaceutical, and ag-bio labs expands, paving the way for the creation of innovative new areas for bioresearch. Still, the question remains of how best to balance cost, quantity and quality when choosing a sequencing platform or service. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s NGx: Applying Next-Generation Sequencing investigates the expanding applications of NGS. Learn from experienced researchers from large sequencing centers, core laboratories, and specialized groups as they share their practical knowledge, real-world experiences and solutions.
