Next Generation Sequencing Workshops/Symposia/Seminars
Next generation sequencing (NGS) is an incredibly powerful technology that is transforming genetics and genomics. The GSI recognizes that for many investigators at Boston University integrating NGS into their research strategy is essential for remaining competitive and obtaining funding. We have thus initiated a number of programs aimed at bringing this often challenging technique to as many BU investigators as possible. These programs include seminars and mini-symposia exploring the theoretical and technical aspects of NGS, and hands-on workshops designed to facilitate the integration of NGS into labs that currently lack expertise.
