The field of Next Generation Sequencing is rapidly changing, both in instrumentation and applications, making it difficult even for experts to remain current. Recognizing the advantages and limitations of genomic sequencing is important, especially in clinical testing and research applications.
Listen to Emily Farrow, PhD, provide an overview of current sequencing technology including its strengths and weaknesses. Complimentary technologies commonly used in both the research and clinical setting, and strategies for their utilization will also be discussed.
Looking forward, the Center for Pediatric Genomic Medicine is actively developing new technologies and protocols to expand the use of NGS. Hear about ongoing projects under development that are addressing complex regions and structural variations.
