Attending RNA-Seq 2013 will arm you with the knowledge and skills you need to optimize the practical application of RNA-Seq technology in your lab.
Whether you’ve been using RNA-Seq for years and feel relatively well established, or it’s a totally new addition to your research programs, this agenda has been designed for you.
Enter the minds of the RNA-Seq experts from Bristol-Myers Squibb, Yale University, Merck, Genentech, Broad Institute, AstraZeneca, Stanford and a whole lot more. This is the perfect opportunity to hear novel approaches to overcoming the challenges preventing you from applying RNA-Seq to its full potential in the lab.
RNA-Seq 2013 brings together RNA-Seq leaders and innovators from pharma, biotech, genome institutes and universities. Leave the meeting with…
Get your specific challenges solved during the interactive pre-conference workshops and get a head start on the learning and networking by meeting people applying or looking to apply RNA-Seq.
Workshop A is hosted by NIH and gives you the most recent, interactive update on combining gene models into a single set. Leave with a detailed understanding of how you can use annotation pipelines and interpret the result.
During Workshop B, the Broad Institute will describe how to leverage RNA-Seq data for transcript analysis for genome-based and genome-free studies. You will come back to the lab with a hands-on understanding of how different software tools can be applied to next-gen transcriptome data.
At Workshop C, led by NYU School of Medicine you will discover novel biomedical applications of RNA-Seq, and specifically what are the best and most suitable computational quality control methods for your particular project.
At RNA-Seq 2013, experience the power of collaboration. Build relationships with industry peers and future clients by meeting all of the key stakeholders working with RNA-Seq. This means it’s for:
"The event brought together some of the brightest minds and industry leaders in genomics for a series of iluminating seminars and beneficial meetings. We look forward to working with Hanson Wade in the near future" Bina Technologies
"it was a great conference. Very carefully chosen content and very informative. It is the right balance between industry and academia. I enjoyed all presentations and discussion panels" Millennium
"One of the best NGS workshop tutorials I have seen. Hanson Wade did a great job at bringing the leaders that laid out the workflow of RNA and DNA NGS along with the advantages and challenges" Viracor-IBT Laboratories
