Modern high-throughput data collection methods are likely to be highly enabling and transformative to the biomedical sciences. The rapid development of sequencing technologies has increased in throughput by many orders of magnitude in the past generation. Indeed, the entire human genome is now easily sequenced, from both time and cost perspectives, whereas not so long ago it required large consortia or major corporations in many years and millions of dollars to generate the necessary sequence raw material. Within this workshop, Prof Cho will provide you some practical advice about how NGS helps biomarker discovery in cancer research.
Workshop A will address:
