Next generation DNA sequencing

May 22, 2013

The advent of next-generation sequencing is considered the most propelling technological advance, which has resulted in the doubling of sequence data almost every five months and the precipitous drop in the cost of sequencing a region of DNA.

This is a rebroadcast of a webinar that tracks the evolution of next-generation sequencing and explores what the future holds in terms of the technology and its medical applications.
