Beyond Next-Generation Sequencing from thescientistllc on Vimeo

Third-generation sequencing methods promise longer sequence reads without the challenges of genome assembly. Beyond simple DNA sequencing, these technologies can reveal epigenetics, transcriptomics, and metagenomics data. This webinar, brought to you by The Scientist, will explore new sequencing technologies in development that surpass the capability of current next-generation sequencing to help more fully understand human health and disease.

Topics to be covered

  • Solving computational problems in genomics research
  • Applying complex genomics for understanding health and disease
