The conference will take place on 15th & 16th November and is a partnership between Biotexcel, Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) & the University Hospital Erasme, BRIGHTcore & the Centre for Medical Genetics VUB- UZ Brussel – and the scientific committee is made up of staff from all these organizations. In conjunction with the conference there will be a one day Workshop on 14th November that will provide Next Generation Sequencing Data Analysis training to those working in the wetlab who want to be able to analyse the data and understand the data analysis workflows.
The conference will look at the latest developments in the use of Genomics tools & technologies focusing on Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) to understand human disease. Aside from the routine NGS applications such as Exome, Genome and Transcriptome sequencing the audience will get a chance to hear about evolving tools and applications. We hope to take a look at interesting case studies, applications with limiting sample input, linkage between the microbiome and human disease, cancer genomics new data analysis and storage solutions and many other topics.
