Conference - Sheffield, United Kingdom 
Biotexcel are proud to announce the 2nd Annual Winter Next Generation Sequencing conference to be held at the Halifax Hall venue in Sheffield on 11th & 12th November 2014. This event follows on from NGS 2013 Manchester and takes a step forward in the much requested joining up of presentations from University NGS research groups and Hospital NGS clinical diagnostics units. Indeed this event is the first of its kind in the UK as it is held in partnership together with Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust and the University of Sheffield.
Our characteristic genomics events have traditionally taken research based Next Generation Sequencing applications and brought them into a clinical diagnostics theme so that groups from both backgrounds can discuss new areas of collaborations and network together. At this second winter conference, we will bring together groups from both of these backgrounds to discuss not just the usual bottlenecks in NGS but also the cutting edge discoveries in the popular application areas such as whole genome, exome, and RNA sequencing. An emphasis will also be placed on data quality with presentations showing the quality aspects across laboratories. Data analysis is a key bottleneck that will be addressed with some unique and novel insights.
Tue, Nov 11, 2014 - Wed, Nov 12, 2014
 Halifax Hall, University of Sheffield
Endcliffe Vale Road, S10 3ER, Sheffield, United Kingdom
