SELECTBIO is hosting its Next Generation Sequencing: Research to Clinic Conference to bring together delegates from around the world focusing on technology development, informatics/data analysis, and applications of next generation sequencing (NGS) in various research fields, and the migration of NGS towards the clinic. In this conference, there are presentations and panel discussions focusing on sample-preparation for NGS, NGS instrumentation, NGS data analysis/big data, and most-importantly the universe of applications being developed for the use of NGS in the discovery and interrogation of biomarkers, especially in oncology.  As NGS permeates the cancer biomarker realm and cost of NGS declines, there is the opportunity and hope to deploy NGS as a means to personalize cancer diagnostics and therapeutics.


Agenda Topics:

  • Front-end Sample Preparation for NGS
  • Informatics and Data Handling/Analysis
    • NGS Big Data Handling
  • New Technology Development in NGS
  • Instrumentation Platforms
  • Reagent Offerings
  • NGS in Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT)
  • Oncology Space and the Penetrance of NGS in Cancer Mutation Discovery
  • Regulatory Landscape and Commercial Trends
  • NGS for Clinical Testing
  • NGS for Development of Therapeutic Antibodies and Vaccines
  • Discovery of Mutations and Potential Biomarkers
  • Epigenetic Modifications
  • NGS on Exosomes, Extracellular Vesicles, and Biological Fluids
  • RNA-Seq
  • NGS on Rare Cells (such as Circulating Tumor Cells)
  • Research Trends and Applications of NGS


Keynote Speakers:

Charles Cantor Chief Scientific Officer, Sequenom

Nazneen Aziz Director, College of American Pathologists

Michael Heller Professor, University of California San Diego

Doron Lipson Director, Computational Biology Methods, Foundation Medicine
