Next-generation sequencing ( NGS ) has emerged as now-generation
sequencing and has moved from the testing stage into production.
Platform providers of second-generation systems have increased read
length and throughput of their instruments, facilitated paired-end
sequencing, and lowered the cost of sequencing. End-users from the
basic and biomedical research community are making discoveries as
rapidly as the bases are being sequenced. All agree however, with the
implementation and maturation of any new technology there is a
balancing act of cost-quality-quantity. The potential applications are
as numerous as the samples to be analyzed. Each NGS platform is
optimized for specific sequencing applications. Cambridge Healthtech
InstituteÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Fourth Annual Now-Generation Sequencing offers an
unparalleled opportunity to compare and contrast NGS platforms to best
suit your research needs.
