Organised by: the Genomics Unit of the CRG Core Facilities
Next generation sequencing has become an essential tool for providing molecular insight into health and disease. Large amounts of data together with low per-base costs have resulted in a large number of experimental protocols that meanwhile are conveniently addressed by high-throughput sequencing. However, challenges remain. In the context of this symposium, speakers will address targeted sequencing of genomic intervals devoid of methylation, ChIP-seq from small amounts of starting material, as well as novel approaches for long-read sequencing.
