Next generation sequencing (NGS) is being transformative for the practice of clinical biology, and the high efficiency in sequencing mean that this will become a viable technology in diagnostic and research laboratories in the near future. The technology
offers the advantage of higher sensitivity and the potential to detect the microbial gene and genomes, including unknown and unexpected strains. In view of the robust advantages of NGS, we aim to introduce the technology to potential or current NGS
This module aims to introduce the latest technologies in clinical diagnostics. Emphasis will be on understanding the methodologies and hands-on experience on the use of uprising diagnostics techniques to diagnose or monitor diseases.
• Principles behind NGS
• Advances created by NGS
• Hands-on Training on Using NGS workflow
• Apply NGS Technologies
Industries which wish to understand the next diagnostics trend; Researchers, Clinicians and Managers who embark on next generation sequencing.
