Next-Generation Sequencing Videos Now Available for On-Demand Viewing

By Alex Matthews

San Diego, Nov. 23, 2008 -- Calit2's Center for Algorithmic and Systems Biology (CASB) recently hosted the UC San Diego Next-Generation Sequencing and Informatics Symposium. The Nov. 9-10 meeting provided an introduction to next-generation sequencing techniques, along with reports on the latest data analysis algorithms and tools. The first day focused on resequencing and de novo sequencing, and the algorithmic developmens that are driving the increase in data quality and volume in this field. On day two, the focus shifted to new applications, including digital gene expression, epigenetics, targeted sequencing, protein-DNA interactions, genotyping, SNP mapping, and more. Symposium presentations are now available for on-demand viewing; click on the image or video links below to watch individual talks. [Windows Media and broadband connection required].
