SciGenom Research Foundation (SGRF) is pleased to host the Next-Generation Sequencing and Bioinformatics. The conference will be held at CSIR-IGIB in New Delhi.

In the ten years since the first human reference genome was completed for US$3 billion the sequencing technologies have radically changed leading to great reduction in sequencing cost. Today a human genome can be sequenced for under US$ 5000 in less than two weeks. It is expected that by the end of 2015 the cost of sequencing a human genome will drop to below thousand dollars. The next generation sequencing technologies over the past five years have enabled a large number of genomic studies that impact human health and disease. Also, this has made possible the growth of microbial, animal and plant genomics studies. While the data production has increased at a rapid pace challenges remain in analyzing and understanding the data. The conference will cover the next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies, bioinformatics for NGS and applications of NGS in many areas including personalized medicine.

MitoMAP - Realtime Haplotyping at the conference!
To show case the state of sequencing technologies, we will perform a real time sequencing and analysis of mitochondria from consenting participants at the conference. You have a chance to provide a cheek swab on Nov 14th (before 12:00pm) along with your consent to sequence the mitochondria from your cheek cells sample. The samples will be anonymized and maternal haplotype from 50-100 participants will be determined in less than 48h using next gen sequencing. The results from this will be shared at the last session of the meeting.
