Enabled by better cost-performance curves and novel technology developments, Next-Generation Sequencing technologies keep on pushing the boundaries of our scientific knowledge. The NGS-field is still expanding and to take advantage of new opportunities offered by these technologies in life sciences, VIB Conferences will host the second edition of Revolutionizing Next-Generation Sequencing: Tools and Technologies.

After a sold-out 2015 edition, RNGS17 will look at emerging tools and approaches for:

Our group has been actively pursuing the idea that with great microscopes and great informatics we will be able to truly digitize models of cells, tissues, and organisms through time with information about the genetic and proteomic states of each cell layered there on. The belief is that these atlases combined with optical observations of labeled entities will accelerate the life sciences by allowing us to visualize these systems from any vantage point and as a system, thus leading to many discoveries such as the nature of the genetic control of fly wing development.

Workshops / SIGs

The workshops are expected to provide participants with an informal setting to discuss technical issues, exchange research ideas, and to share practical experiences on a range of focused or emerging topics in bioinformatics. SIGs are workshops organized by a special interest group. Each workshop should provide an interesting perspective on the cutting edge of a selected research field. Workshops may include any form of presentation such as talks or panel discussions.
