The scientific theme for this meeting like most Biotexcel meetings will cover the areas where Next Generation Sequencing is used in the analysis of human disease. These topics will include different disease areas where particularly promising genomic studies have been performed; large population studies such as the East London Genes & health project; whole genome & whole exome studies; epigenomics and many other topics. In a slight variation to our usual back to back academic talks, in this meeting we will also hear from commercial genomic companies, whether those that currently have genomic solutions on the market, or those that are spin-outs or in the research or earlier phases, as well as hearing from Illumina’s Chief Scientist David Bentley. We are excited to have some great names from the world of genomics such as Prof Carlos Caldas, Prof Stephan Beck, Prof Eamonn Maher and many others. Join us in Cambridge for a really exciting meeting where you can hear from the opinion leaders in Genomics in a relaxed casual setting and network with the speakers as well as with other fellow delegates. The evening will see a networking dinner at Thaikhun restaurant where speakers and delegates can meet up and carry on discussions in an even more informal setting.
