Raffaele explains that there have been some really exciting developments since the emergence of RNA-Seq technology. Of course you’ll probably know that. However, a word of warning from Raffaele was that if you don’t have a good design, data will be very difficult to analyse. There is still a long way to go!

Raffaele is one of the expert speakers at RNA-Seq Europe, with the likes of Edward Oakeley (Novartis), Patrick Descombes (Nestle Institute of Health Sciences), Henrik Seidel (Bayer) and Ralph Schlapbach (ETH Zurich).
Raffaele is leading an interactive pre-conference workshop in which he will be giving a comprehensive introduction to RNA-Seq technology for both new and established users. In addition he will be giving a more specific presentation on the program covering the state-of-the-art bioinformatics approaches his team are applying to RNA-Seq data.
