Genome and Transcriptome Analysis
Next-Generation Sequencing of Disease Genomes, Epigenomes & Transcriptomes
February 10-12, 2014 | Moscone North Convention Center | San Francisco, CA
Over a decade following the completion of the Human Genome Project, next-generation sequencing has progressed from the future to the forefront of modern-day research. The advent of NGS – along with a shift toward precision medicine – has revolutionized the prevention, diagnosis, prognosis, treatment and understanding of the basic biology of complex disease, by offering unprecedented interrogation of the human genome at high resolution, and relatively low costs. With NGS becoming commonplace, and canvassing a wide range of applications within genome, epigenome, and transcriptome interrogation, holistic views of human diseases are emerging from the integration of varied NGS data – providing insights into the underlying genome, a regulatory epigenome, and a dynamic transcriptome. The Genome and Transcriptome Analysis meeting is designed to explore how NGS is continuing to shape our understanding human disease, by uncovering biological meaning from analyzing NGS data.
