09/26/2011 - Next-Generation Sequencing Data Management / Applying Next-Generation Sequencing

NGS platforms now generate terabytes of genomic data, calling into question: What is the best way to benefit from this data bonanza? CHI’s Next-Generation Sequencing Data Management combines unique perspectives from a variety of researchers, engineers, biostatisticians, and software developers involved with NGS data management. While the cost of sequencing declines, use in academic, clinical, biotech, and pharmaceutical labs expands, paving the way for the creation of innovative new markets for bioresearch. By delivering fast, diverse, precise, and large volumes of data, NGS extends our fundamental understanding of genomics, mutation, and gene function and regulation. CHI’s Applying Next-Generation Sequencing investigates the applications of next-generation sequencing platforms as they apply to your specific research projects.
