The rapid emergence of next-generation sequencing (NGS) is revolutionizing biological research. Technology that was once available only for major sequencing centers, is now available to all as price for entry and time for implementation continues to drop. Purchasing a NGS platform, however, is still a major decision. How do you maximize the greatest potential for your investment? Reaching this potential requires efficient pipeline workflow strategies, careful experimental design, comprehensive targeted enrichment technologies, data analysis, management, and integration, in addition to maintaining your platform and people management all at maximum production. The central theme of Cambridge Healthtech Instituteâ€™s Second Annual Beyond Sequencing: Managing Resources and Maintaining NGS Platforms for Peak Performance is gaining efficient use of your NGS platform. Sessions will focus on common bottlenecks, case studies, real-world experiences and solutions from experienced users.
