Next Generation Sequencing has
revolutionized genome research
The Next NGS Challenge Conference
advances what it is still to come...
The Next NGS Challenge Conference is a joint event of the EU COST Action SeqAhead, the EMBnet, the International Society of Computational Biology ISCB and the 7FP Project STATegra that aims to become a dedicated meeting on cutting-edge Next Generation Sequencing applications. The goal of this Conference is to bring together computational biologist and bioinformaticians facing new challenges on high-throughput sequencing and to feature new trends in NGS-based genome research.
The Conference will consist of keynote lectures, contributed oral presentations and lively afternoon Poster sessions. The organizers are now accepting submissions on novel NGS applications / discoveries algorithms for NGS data processing and integration, and efficient solutions for the management of massive sequence data.
MARK IT IN YOUR AGENDA!!!
Dates: 15th and 16th May 2013
14th May: WorkShop in NGS Data Analysis

Ivo Gut. Director of CNAG. He qualified in Chemistry at the University of Basel and obtained a PhD in Physical Chemistry from the same university. Researcher fellow at the Imperial Cancer Research Fund in London, group leader at the Max-Planck-Institute for Molecular Genetics in the Department for Vertebrate Genomics, before joining the CNAG he worked at the Centre National de Génotypage of the Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique in Evry, France. His research interests are: high-throughput nucleic acid analysis, sequencing, SNP genotyping, genomics, genetics, nucleic acid and protein analysis methods (molecular biological techniques and chemical modification), implementation of methods, automation and analysis.
Michele Morgante, Director of IGA and Professor of Genetics at the University of Udine. He was educated as a geneticist and then worked for 5 years ad DuPont Crop Genomics as Senior Scientist. His research group has been instrumental in establishing a number of genetic technology platforms that are now being widely deployed in plant genomic research. He is member of the Scientific Board of the National Research Council of Italy and Associate Editor of Theoretical and Applied Genetics and Tree Genetics and Genomes.
