OGT to Host Live Webinar on the Optimal Strategies for Exome Sequencing and Analysis

Oxford, United Kingdom (PressExposure) August 22, 2012 -- Oxford Gene Technology (OGT), provider of innovative clinical genetics and diagnostic solutions to advance molecular medicine, will host a live Webinar on Thursday 6th September (3 pm BST) hosted by Dr Daniel Swan, Senior NGS Computational Biologist at OGT. Entitled "Exome sequencing and analysis strategies that deliver meaningful results", the Webinar will provide insight and advice for optimising exome sequencing studies, taking advantage of the knowledge and experience routinely offered as part of OGT's comprehensive Genefficiencyâ„¢ exome sequencing and analysis service. The Webinar will be ideal viewing for any clinical or genomic researchers interested in learning how to best utilise the power offered by next generation sequencing analysis.

Exome sequencing is fast becoming the technique of choice to identify the novel genetic variations underpinning a variety of conditions, from rare diseases to cancer. However, effective study design and data analysis strategies are essential to ensure the delivery of meaningful results. The live Webinar will provide insight into running a successful exome sequencing project, including the advantages of exome sequencing, considerations for effective study design, crucial data analysis optimisation steps and effective analysis workflows for different sample types (e.g. rare disease, trios and cancer samples).
