I just got an email from Illumina about a webinar that looks interesting this Wednesday at 9am PST (noon EST) on clinical applications of next-gen sequencing.
Date: Wednesday, December 7, 2011
Time: 9:00 AM (PST)
Speaker: Rick Dewey, MD, Stanford Center for Inherited Cardiovascular Disease
Next-generation sequencing (NGS) presents both challenges and opportunities for clinical care. Dr. Dewey will share examples from his experience at Stanford, successful and otherwise, in which NGS has been applied to cases of familial cardiomyopathy, and other inherited conditions. Bring your questions for a Q&A session. In this webinar, Dr. Dewey will discuss approaches to: Data storage and management; Error identification and reduction; Disease risk encoded in the reference sequence; and Variant validation.
The webinar will be recorded and available to you afterwards if you register.
