Next Generation Sequencing and its Clinical Applications
Advances in sequencing technologies have enabled us to gain a deep understanding of the genetic basis of human disease, and we are increasingly able to apply such knowledge to provide personalised treatments to patients.
Join us for a webinar discussing the recent advances in sequencing technologies and how they are being applied to understand, prevent and treat human disease. In particular we will guide you through the basic principles of Next Generation Sequencing and how its advances have enabled us to diagnose and treat patients with various cancers and diseases. Some common sequencing and analysis approaches being used for different clinical applications including those from Genomics, Transcriptomics and Epigenomics will be introduced. The webinar will highlight advances that have provided insight into the role of genetics in health and disease.
