Next-generation sequencing (NGS) has significantly contributed to the transformation of genomic research, not only by decreasing the sequencing costs but also by increasing the throughput. The next goal is to exploit this powerful technology in the clinic, namely for diagnostics and therapeutics.
Recognizing the challenges that derive from NGS and its clinical applications, the Human Genome Variation Society is organizing a 1-day satellite meeting at the European Human Genetics annual conference in Paris, France 8-11 June 2013. The meeting will revolve around the possible clinical applications of NGS, the potential of some of the current NGS systems to transition to the clinic, the identification of causative mutations for rare genetic disorders through whole-genome or targeted genome resequencing, the application of NGS for family genomics, and NGS data analysis tools. We therefore encourage you to attend and participate in this event.
