The use of Next-Generation Sequencing is changing the landscape of genomic exploration as new and innovative technology evolves how research is performed in the labs. Cutting-edge techniques and protocols are being developed to maximize the potential from these research instruments, but as technology continues to rapidly evolve, there are challenges in managing and analyzing data, as well as the oversight of new discoveries in sequencing.

GTC's Next Generation Sequencing Conference to be held July 7-8, 2011 at the Hyatt at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco, CA, is a forum for industry and academic leaders in research and informatics to discuss the accomplishments and challenges of sequencing from data to discovery. Hear from the experts about the latest devices coming down the pipeline, discuss the endeavors of data analysis and management, learn about new discoveries on how sequencing has improved research, and share ideas with colleagues about the development of new techniques and protocols.

Below are the sessions for this year's conference. Check back soon for more updates!
