Next-generation sequencing: an overview of technologies and applications – Ken McGrath

The “Next ‐ Generation Sequencing” landscape is one of constant change, with new and emerging technologies constantly competing with established platforms. This abundance of competition is resulting in faster and cheaper methods to perform sequencing of DNA and RNA samples, but it also brings with it a confusing array of options, each with its own strengths and weaknesses. Ken will give an overview of the available sequencing technologies and run through some examples projects that can be run on them, as well as describe the typical bioinformatics approaches for these projects, and also take a look at what’s “next” in Next ‐ Gen.
