The 2nd Oxford Next Generation Sequencing event, NGS2014, is aimed at providing a one-stop learning solution to this rapidly evolving technology. NGS2014 will consist of three separate components: (i) A short, one-day, course component providing an introduction to NGS (ii) A one-day workshop component providing a hand-on experience to NGS bioinformatics (iii) A one-and a half-day research and technology conference, where research leaders from clinical, biotech and pharma settings will provide an insight into NGS applications and future directions, providing a broad overview of the field. Key topics to be discussed will include clinical genetics applications, microbial applications, differential expression and functional genomics. Delegates will be able to register for individual components or for the whole programme. Discounts will be available for those attending more than one component of NGS2014, and for returning delagets.
