Mini-Sym­po­sium on Novel Ap­pli­ca­tions of Deep Se­quenc­ing in Medi­cine, Ge­nom­ics, and Bio­di­ver­sity Re­search

Halle (Saale), Germany, October 7 - 9, 2014

Location: Institute of Human Genetics, Magdeburger Str. 2, 06112 Halle (Saale)

Deep sequencing technologies have revolutionized genome research in the last decade. These technologies have not only initiated a drop in sequencing costs, but provided so far unknown data coverage. The cost inflation and the deep data coverage made a plethora of new research projects possible that were unthinkable before, and novel applications of deep sequencing in medicine, genomics, and biodiversity research develop daily. These data sets create a need for high performance analysis and storage solutions.

The emergence of truly interdisciplinary research teams uniting scientists from very different fields has started to change the way in which research in the biosciences is being conducted. With this minisymposium, we like to bring together researchers with experimental and computational background from different life sciences to discuss novel applications and future challenges of deep sequencing in a stimulating environment at Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg.
