Nanomedia – Lunch & Learn

08/21/2013 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Next-Generation Sequencing: Applications and Approaches 

We’ve all heard about the $1000 genome. Yet there are many applications of NGS to both basic and applied research that transcend traditional genomics. The purpose of this lunch forum is to present a few examples of these applications and allow you to ask questions relevant to your own research interests.

When: 12:00 – 1:00pm Wednesday, August 21 followed by discussion and networking from 1:00 to 1:30pm

Where: Biotech Place (575 N. Patterson Ave, Winston-Salem, NC 27101): 1st floor auditorium.

Who: Anyone interested in learning about the use of Next-Generation Sequencing for research, clinical and commercial applications

Why: NanoMedica recently moved to Biotech Place to pursue collaborative research opportunities with investigators interested in molecular discovery, sequencing and characterization. We’ve been fortunate to receive the support of Life Technologies and Wake Forest Health Sciences’ Department of Microbiology & Immunology in helping us set up shop. We’d like to say “thank you” by hosting this Lunch & Learn seminar.


12:00 – 12:20 Ion Torrent Sequencing: A few examples NanoMedica

12:20 – 12:40 Personal Genome Machine (PGM) and SOLiD Capabilities Life Technologies

12:40 – 1:00 Questions & Discussion
