This is the sixth of the abstracts for talks being given at the 1st Eagle Genomics Symposium, "Provisioning Bioinformatics for the Next Decade - are we prepared?". Here we will hear from GATC Biotech's Director of Bioinformatics, Ulrike Schoeck. Ulrike will talk on the subject of "From Sanger Sequencing to Third Gen Sequencing - are the bioinformatic challenges still the same?!"
Here is Ulrike's abstract:
"GATC Biotech is using Next Generation Sequencing since 2006. The main goal is the continuously development of new and comprehensive solutions for DNA sequencing and bioinformatics sequence evaluation – for individual DNA samples through to complete genome projects. As a service provider, we are dealing with a lot if different projects. We are using all leading sequencing technologies on the market, such as Applied Biosystems ABI 3730xl for Sanger sequencing, Illumina's HiSeq 2000 and Roche Diagnostics GS FLX as well as Pacific Biosciences PacBio RS for Next Generation sequencing. We will show the key challenges for bioinformatics based on examples of human sample analysis, de novo sequencing, and metagenomic projects. In addition, an outlook for future tasks, especially based on other upcoming technologies like Pacific Biosciences, will be given."
GATC Biotech will also have a small exhibition stand in the coffee area.
