RNA-Seq 2017 is a vital forum for expert biologists and bioinformaticians to come up to speed with the latest advances in applying RNA-Seq technologies and analytical tools from bench to bedside.
This year’s agenda, designed by fore-thinkers in the industry, gives a greater focus to emerging technologies and their clinical applications. It will provide you with new solutions to key challenges including roadblocks in applying single cell technology in the clinic, the integration and mining of RNA-Seq data for drug discovery research, and novel methods to understand the impact of tissue composition and cellular interactions.
Join your peers in an in-depth discussion of data driven case studies to uncover how to fully utilize the technology, and accurately interpret vast amounts of data to unpick the complexity of the transcriptome.
In the lead up to the upcoming RNA-Seq 2017 summit, Dr Garry Nolan (Rachford and Carlota Harris Professor, Stanford University) discusses his most recent research utilizing single cell transcriptomic sequencing (SCTS) and his vision for the future of clinical sequencing.
Dr Nolan is immersed at the cutting edge of the RNA-Seq industry, developing and overseeing a variety of revolutionary projects namely, SCTS, split-pool synthesis combinatorial chemistry as an alternative approach to SCTS, and most recently a single cell analysis advanced using a hybrid of mass spectrometry-flow cytometry.
Here’s an insight into his discussion with the RNA-Seq 2017 Program Director:
“We need to stop boiling oceans of data and start getting specific about measurements for diagnostics”
“The more we understand about the genome, expressome, epigenome, proteome, the sooner we will be able to find a minimal set of surrogate markers that are capable of reading out on health or disease status”
“Incentives around diagnostics have been strangled and frankly to the detriment of the drugs they are meant to validate”
Dr Nolan will once again be joining the expert speaker faculty at the RNA-Seq Summit (April 25-27, San Francisco), presenting on “Single Cell Deep Profiling of Cancer and Immunity”.
