Revolutionizing Next-Generation Sequencing: Tools and Technologies

SOLD OUT

VIB’s Tools and Technologies meeting series aims to provide a forum for both academic top speakers and scientists from emerging companies to present their latest scientific achievements and exciting technological solutions. Catalyzed by VIB’s Technology Scouting team, the Tools and Technologies meetings focus on the front end of innovation and bring together key innovators in selected life sciences research fields.

Our meeting on Revolutionizing Next-Generation Sequencing will look at emerging tools and approaches for Population scale sequencing, Sample prep, Next-Generation Sequencing Platforms, Single-Cell Genomics, Epigenetics, Next-Gen Transcriptomics, Ultralong reads and Assembly, and Bioinformatics.

In addition to a great scientific/technology program, we provide ample opportunity for networking during the meeting. The event will be flavored with some of the best things Belgium has to offer, including special chocolates during the breaks and a Belgian beer reception.

Our conference is fully subscribed, we will not take on-site registrations. Check back for our 2016 edition !
