Lets BGI inspire your research!

May 29th, BGI@Brescia.

This morning we had an exciting meeting with BGI staff to explore the possibility of establishing collaborations with this sequencing juggernaut.
The 7 members of the BGI arranged 4 presentations covering their main activity in generic whole genome sequencing, single cell sequencing in tumors, use of NGS in diagnostic applications and in GWAS studies. Of course their potential and their expertise on NGS technology goes far beyond our present little expertise in the field, but we are sure that this meeting demonstrated to everyone the wide range of fascinating and powerful approaches based on the new sequencing techniques. Lets BGI inspire your research!

Meanwhile take a look to this short video showing part of the presentation made by Dr Yong Hou (Director, Research Institute, BGI Europe; Head, Single Cell Analysis Group, R&D, BGI, Shenzhen; Head, Lab. of Genome Structure and Function, R&D, BGI, Shenzhen) on sequencing applications for tumor studies and single cell sequencing.
