 Global Engage is pleased to announce the 2017 NGS & Clinical Applications Congress, which will be held on July 25-26, 2017 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The event will be co-located with the 3rd qPCR & Digital PCR Congress: USA and the 2nd Microfluidics Congress USA.

Over the past decade, advances in sequencing technology and significant cost reductions have been instrumental to clinical research. Scientists are continuing to develop new sequencing techniques, tools and methods of analysis, and subsequently discovering new applications in clinical research. NGS has already revolutionized the way genomics research is conducted, and with the advent of new methods such as nanopore, it is an exciting time to be in the field.

Attracting experts working in all areas of genomic sequencing, the conference will examine the latest developments in the technologies and techniques being used for progressing medical research, the clinical applications of sequencing, as well as the challenges and future of the field.
Should you be an expert in developing sequencing technologies, or a scientist using NGS to further medical research, the conference will be an excellent opportunity to learn, share, discuss and engage with the most current NGS-based research and technology. During the two-day conference, there will be networking breaks to promote interaction with your peers, expert led case study presentations, a dynamic exhibition room filled with technology providers showcasing their technologies and solutions.
