Build Your Own Agenda


An abundance of choice: Tick off every topic on your own agenda by picking the presentations of most relevance and interest to you across 3 complete, technical streams.

6 days of content packed into 2 days: Covering the entire drug discovery & development process, you and your colleagues will leave the meeting with no questions unanswered.

  1. The Drug Development Applications Stream will provide you with the knowledge you need to practically apply NGS to generate patient selection hypotheses, identify novel targets, discover biomarkers even earlier in drug discovery and successfully employ metagenomics to develop Microbiome targeted therapeutics
  2. Attend the Clinical Applications Stream to understand how you can establish clinical utility of NGS, identify actionable mutations from clinical samples and integrate NGS technologies into the clinical setting to make better diagnoses
  3. In the Data Handling, Analysis & Integration Stream, you will hear the latest strategies to store your data in a manageable way, optimize you bioinformatic tool box and integrate diverse ‘omics’ data sets to uncover new therapeutic strategies


Informative master class workshops

Get your specific challenges solved during the interactive pre-conference workshops and get a head start with the learning and networking by meeting people from your speciality within NGS.

  1. Workshop A is hosted by New York Genome Center will show you how to select the most appropriate data sets & formats and integrate all the information seamlessly into your drug discovery program
  2. During Workshop B, CAP and Harvard Medical School will examine what is required to promote clinical adoption of NGS, how you and your organization can prepare for NGS technology as it moves into clinical diagnostics and how to keep up with an ever evolving clinical landscape
  3. Workshop C, led by Cornell University and Cold Spring Harbour Laboratory, will discuss how you can navigate the major challenges in data processing and analysis and translate exome and genome sequence data into meaningful clinical information
