Over the last 5 years, the field of plant genomics has developed rapidly as a result of revolutionary breakthroughs and reduction in Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) costs.
Many plants have been successfully sequenced and a wide range of biological data sets made available. Plant scientists are now able to utilize NGS platforms to support their research on crop improvement by harnessing the greater understanding of plant genomes.
The 4th Plant Genomics Congress held 9-10 May 2016 in London will examine the latest NGS technologies to overcome bottlenecks and enable successful data analysis and management for progressing plant based research.
Genalice is present at this congress with a booth (#1) and a joint workshop, together with KeyGene. During this workshop, you will learn how the breakthrough software solution Genalice Map can be used to transform NGS data analysis workflows into ultra-fast, simple and cost-effective processes and how KeyGene’s technology platforms can be used to enhance and expedite innovation in global agriculture.
The KeyGene and Genalice teams kindly invite you to attend their joint workshop organized immediately following the day 1 program of the Plant Genomics Congress in London: Bringing plant genomics data analysis to the next level.
Venue: London Heathrow Marriott Hotel
Room: Orville Suite
Date: Monday, May 9, 2016
Time: 06:30 PM – 7:30 PM
6:30 PM – Genalice Map: The answer to the NGS data analysis challenges in Agbio
Hans Karten (Chief Executive and Technology Officer, Genalice) will introduce the audience to the unique characteristics and excellent alignment with the plant genomics challenges of the company’s breakthrough NGS secondary data analysis solution.
6:50 PM – Population Calling: a powerful tool for novel mutation detection in larger sample pools
Alexander Wittenberg (Business Developer – Genomics & Genotyping, KeyGene) will share KeyGene’s experience with the GENALICE MAP Population Caller on large-scale re-sequencing data in plant genomes. Additionally, Alexander will showcase the value of KeyGene’s Variome Analysis platform and CropPedia in their application to accelerate crop improvement.
7:10 PM – Panel discussion
If you are exploring new better ways to manage large-scale NGS data, we would be glad to hear your case.
Meet us at the Plant Genomics Congress at the London Heathrow Marriott Hotel in Orville Suite on Monday, May 9th at 6:30 PM.
