Next Generation Sequencing Next Generation Sequencing
August 14, 2012 |
If you are confused by the evolving, rapidly changing, and dynamic nature of the Next Generation Sequencing market, then this is the course for you. This course will provide you with a comprehensive, clear outline of the various sequencing technologies currently available, their best suited applications, and which analysis strategies go with what applications in order to get the best answer from the data.
A Practical Guide to Choosing the Right SNP Detection Tool A Practical Guide to Choosing the Right SNP Detection Tool
August 13, 2012 |
There is an urgent need for the NGS community to be able to make the right choice from available SNP detection tools. We have used exome-seq data to evaluate the quality of SNP calls from selected discovery tools from both academic and commercial products. We compared the quality of SNP calls from selected tools side by side and assessed their global quality by checking for Mendelian inheritance inconsistencies within the SNP calls of family members and by using the SNP array data from the same samples. This course will show the comparison results of these selected tools and provide a practical guide to choosing and using the right SNP detection tool.
Clinical Genome Sequencing Clinical Genome Sequencing
June 11, 2012 |
The move to push genome sequencing into routine clinical practice requires arguably as much skill in navigating bureaucracy as mapping and interpreting base pairs. This short course provides practical information on crafting clinical sequencing and analysis pipeline strategies while navigating the route of CAP and CLIA certification by those who have sailed through these uncharted waters.

Liquid Biopsy: An Emerging Market for Radically Improved Cancer Mgmt
Liquid Biopsy: An Emerging Market for Radically Improved Cancer Management report explores the background, history and basic research of liquid biopsy covering the three sample categories that dominate liquid biopsy today: circulating tumor cells (CTCs), circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA), and extracellular vesicles (EVs, also known as exosomes). This report also details the commercial aspects, market dynamics, and trends of liquid biopsy.
Prenatal Diagnostics: Invasive testing, noninvasive testing, and rising maternal screening methods for preeclampsia and preterm labor
New to insight Pharma Reports is Prenatal Diagnostics: Invasive testing, noninvasive testing, and rising maternal screening methods for preeclampsia and preterm labor. This report discusses improvements in invasive procedures (karyotyping vs. cytogenetics), and the rise of noninvasive screening methods and their impact on prenatal healthcare.
Epigenetics: Emerging Targets, Available Technologies, Expert Interviews, and an Epigenetic Community Perspective
Epigenetics: Emerging Targets, Available Technologies, Expert Interviews, and an Epigenetic Community Perspective provides an overview of the scientific and technological landscape from which both the diagnostic and therapeutic sectors of the nascent epigenetics industry are emerging, plus a qualitative analysis of the scientific, technological, and commercial achievements and challenges facing both sectors.
