Future-Proofing a Genomics Core: Considerations When Adopting New NGS Technologies

GenomeWebinar

Manager, Tumor Profiling Unit, Institute for Cancer Research in London, UK 

This webinar will provide an overview of the sequencing capabilities of the Tumor Profiling Unit at the Institute for Cancer Research in London, with a focus on the lab's strategy for bringing in new genomics technologies.

Improvements in next-generation sequencing technology have historically focused on speed and throughput, while the latest advances are focused on data quality and sensitivity of detection. Adopting new technologies that offer greater genomic insights will bring current genomic labs gracefully into 2020 and beyond.

In this webinar, Nik Matthews, manager of the ICR Tumor Profiling unit, will share insight into the current state of NGS technology and considerations to remain at the forefront of improvements in data quality.
