Revolutionizing Next-Generation Sequencing (2nd Edition)

20 Mar 21 Mar 2017

A VIB Tools & Technologies Conference.

Enabled by better cost-performance curves and novel technology developments, Next-Generation Sequencing technologies keep on pushing the boundaries of our scientific knowledge. The NGS-field is still expanding and to take advantage of new opportunities offered by these technologies in life sciences, VIB Conferences will host the second edition of Revolutionizing Next-Generation Sequencing: Tools and Technologies.

After a sold-out 2015 edition, RNGS17 will look at emerging tools and approaches for:

- Large-scale Sequencing
- Applications for Current and Emerging Next-Generation Sequencing Platforms
- Single-Cell Genomics
- Epigenetics 
- Next-gen Transcriptomics technologies 
- Ultra-long reads and Assembly
- Computational genomics and data analysis

In addition to a great scientific and technology program, the conference will provide ample opportunities to network during the breaks, poster sessions, the conference dinner and our ‘Meet the Expert’ session!
