Registration is open for the 2015 Ion World Tour. There is an exciting collection of researchers sharing their latest work using Ion Torrent™ sequencing. Everything from studying the viral epidemiology using archived samples from the recent Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone, to forestry , to biomarker discoveries in cancer and inherited disease research; there is something for everyone.
As a preview, here’s just some of what you can expect to hear.
Sept 8, Oslo, Norway
There will be a variety of human genetics studies presented and Mattias Mild, Folkhälsomyndigheten Laboratorieutveckling, Sweden will present on NGS as a routine workflow in microbiology surveillance research
Sept 9 & 11, 2 locations in New York City, NY
Gene expression profiling research, and genetic analysis of circulating tumor cells are just some of the topics that will accompany a double header presentation by Bobby Sebra, Director of Technology Development, Icahn School of Medicine.
