Webinar “A Traveler’s Guide to Next Generation Sequencing”. Wed 26th June 5pm

Recent advances in technology and cost effectiveness of next generation sequencing has led to its progressively wider implementation in both research and clinical settings. The amount of data it produces, however, can be overwhelming—typically over three million variants per genome. The challenges for many researchers today are how to make sense of this huge volume of data in the context of the scientific question being asked, and how to identify those variants that provide meaningful and relevant information. In this webinar we will discuss current approaches to variant analysis and how they can be most effectively integrated into the next generation sequencing pipeline.

During the webinar, viewers will:

Learn about various methods for analyzing and comparing variants, including tips and pitfalls
Gain a fuller understanding of the importance of accurate and robust variant analysis
Receive advice on managing and manipulating large data sets
Have the opportunity to put their questions to our panel of experts!
