Next-generation sequencing platforms are opening up new opportunities in precision medicine by dramatically reducing the cost and time to access large volumes of genomic data.
This webcast will highlight innovative technologies being developed by companies in the field, and how they are laying the groundwork for novel therapeutics and diagnostics in areas such as oncology and rare diseases. The topics will include advanced bioinformatics and next-generation sequencing for pathogen detection, nanosensor technology for genome sequencing and healthcare diagnostics, molecular indexing technology for digital detection of single cells and cloud-based accelerated genomics analysis.

The webcast will conclude with a live roundtable discussion and a Q&A section to allow you to hear the views of the speakers and to put your own questions to them.
