Special Topics - Next generation DNA sequencing technologies and applications

Tuesday, August 14, 2012: 8:30 AM-11:30 AM
Meeting Room 11-12, Columbia Hall, Terrace level (Washington Hilton)
Jon Armstrong
Next-generation sequencing and analysis provides the ability to assess the genomic organization and regulatory processes of organisms at a previously unimagined resolution. This session will bring together execution and thought leaders, from molecular biology and bioinformatics, to present current strategies and challenges associated with generating, analyzing, and utilizing next-generation sequencing data.
