NGS4MG: Next Generation Sequencing for Marine Genomics Symposium
Vigo (Spain), 27 September 2012
The recent advances in sequencing technology have revolutionized genomic research and have represented a big enough shift from previous technologies to be widely termed “Next Generation Sequencing”, NGS. The main effect effect of these technologies has been the fast processing and analysis of large quantities of genomic data at ever more economical prices. Their effect has been been so profound that they are also changing fundamental investigative methods by moving research from the traditional hypothesis-based approach to one based on data. The aim of this symposium is to explain what NGS consists of, its advantages and shortcomings and its potential use in the marine environment.
