Upcoming Next-Gen Sequencing Conferences

Evolution of Next Generation Sequencing
September 27th – 29th, 2010
Rhode Island Convention Center – Providence, RI
Cambridge Healthtech

Second-Generation Applications to Third-Generation Progress

Beyond the Genome: The true gene count, human evolution and disease genomics
October 11th – 13th, 2010
Joseph B. Martin Conference Center, Harvard Medical School – Boston, MA
BioMed Central

This international conference brings together leading researchers and industry representatives who will review recent progress in key areas of post-genomic research in biology and medicine and chart future developments, including the Human Microbiome Project and the resequencing of matched tumour and normal genomes from specific types of cancers. A cloud computing workshop, which will be open to all delegates, will provide an exciting opportunity to discuss recent and forthcoming developments in this critical and fast-moving field with policy makers and commercial and academic representatives of the genomics community and cloud platforms.

Next Generation Sequencing Congress 2010
November 15th – 16th, 2010
Radisson Edwardian, Heathrow – London, UK
Oxford Global Conference

Next generation sequencing technologies are revolutioising biology by allowing for genome wide transcription factor binding-site profiling, transcriptome sequencing and more recently, as an endpoint to applications ranging fromchromatin immunoprecipitation, mutation mapping and polymorphism discovery to noncoding RNA discovery.

Over the 2 days, the conference provides an overview of the current options of next generation sequencing platform, technologies, applications and the newest computational tools for the analysis of next-generation sequencing data.

X-Gen Congress and Expo
March 14th – 18th, 2011
Hilton – San Diego, CA
Cambridge Healthtech

Welcome to the Decade of the Genomics Revolution!  Technological advances are now enabling faster and cheaper DNA/RNA mapping, creating genomic comparisons and accelerating genomic discoveries.
NeXt-GENeration sequencing platforms create sequence reads of DNA fragments for genome variation studies, RNA for transcriptome studies, DNA-protein interactions for epigenetic studies, and chromosomal DNA of  large genome nucleotide variations for copy number studies.  The X-Gen Congress and Expo is uniquely designed to facilitate the cross fertilization of established and emerging genomic technologies, along with exciting applications. In addition, you will learn why data is the driving force that enables genomic discoveries.
