Revolutionizing Next-Generation Sequencing (2nd edition)

A VIB Tools & Technologies Conference

Enabled by better cost-performance curves and novel technology developments, Next-Generation Sequencing technologies keep on pushing the boundaries of our scientific knowledge. The NGS-field is still expanding and to take advantage of new opportunities offered by these technologies in life sciences, VIB Conferences will host the second edition of Revolutionizing Next-Generation Sequencing: Tools and Technologies.

After a sold-out 2015 edition, RNGS17 will look at emerging tools and approaches for:

  • Large-scale Sequencing
  • Applications for Current and Emerging Next-Generation Sequencing Platforms
  • Single-Cell Genomics
  • Epigenetics
  • Next-Generation Transcriptomics technologies
  • Ultra-long reads and Assembly
  • Computational genomics and data analysis

In addition to a great scientific and technology program, the conference will provide ample opportunities to network during the breaks, poster sessions, the conference dinner and our ‘Meet the Expert’ session!

You can find more info about the sold out first edition here.

Meet the Expert session with: ‘Dr. Elisabeth Reczek​ - CEO, SeqLL, US​’

We offer all junior researchers the opportunity to join our ‘Meet the Expert' session with Prof. Dr. Elisabeth Reczek. During an informal round table discussion on the 20th of March, PhD students and postdocs will have the exclusive opportunity to ask any question/advise related to their research and careers. If you are interested in joining the session, then send an e-mail to conferences@vib.be. Seating is very limited so make sure to reserve a spot soon.
