Second workshop in Dummerstorf

(Oct 10, 2018) The second workshop was a big success! Please see the photo. We thank BioCon Valley e.V. for sponsoring the event!

Our second workshop in Dummerstorf will be held on Monday, 8.10.2018 at the FBN Dummerstorf.

Four years after our first very successful workshop on Next Generation Sequencing in MV, we would now like to invite you all for the second workshop dedicated to this exiting technology. As technical development and NGS projects in MV have moved on, we think that this is the time to demonstrate the wealth of applications and research topics associated with NGS. We want to bring together experts from a variety of disciplines ranging from genetic diagnostics, medicine, farm animal biology or microbiology/virology to bioinformatics and systems biology. We are all united in exploring new perspectives in our fields by applying an ever extending spectrum of protocols and pipelines. We would particularly invite young scientists to participate. As you will see from our program, we intentionally will leave a lot of time slots for discussion with other experts in the fields and will have key note speakers providing perspectives for innovation and future areas of research.

Registration Information can be found below (even though the deadline passed, registration is still possible).

The updated flyer can be found below, including the prefinal program for Monday, 8. Oktober 2018
