A standing-room-only workshop at the European Society of Human Genetics (ESHG) 2012 conference in Nürnberg, Germany (June 23-26) is now available online from Oxford Gene Technology (OGT). Discussed was the use of arrays and next generation sequencing (NGS) to identify causative mutations in cancer and rare disease samples.
Among those speaking were Dr Dan Swan, a Senior NGS Computational Biologist at OGT, and Professor Jacqueline Schoumans, head of the Cancer Cytogenetic Unit in Lausanne University Hospital, Switzerland. Professor Schoumans discussed her team’s recently published study comparing the performance of several array platforms. An interview with Professor Schoumans regarding her research and choice of array platform, conducted at ESHG by Justin Petrone for GenomeWeb, is freely available to download from OGT’s website.
