Revolutionizing Next-Generation Sequencing (2nd edition)
2017-03-20 to 2017-03-21
Antwerp, Belgium

Enabled by better cost-performance curves and novel technology developments, Next-Generation Sequencing technologies keep on pushing the boundaries of our scientific knowledge. The NGS-field is still expanding and to take advantage of new opportunities offered by these technologies in life sciences, VIB Conferences will host the second edition of Revolutionizing Next-Generation Sequencing: Tools and Technologies.
After a sold-out 2015 edition, RNGS17 will look at emerging tools and approaches for:
• Large-scale Sequencing
• Applications for Current and Emerging Next-Generation Sequencing Platforms
• Single-Cell Genomics
• Epigenetics
• Next-gen Transcriptomics technologies
• Ultra-long reads and Assembly
• Computational genomics and data analysis

In addition to a great scientific and technology program, the conference will provide ample opportunities to network during the breaks, poster sessions, the conference dinner and our ‘Meet the Expert’ session!

• Abstract submission deadline: 20 January 2017
• Early Bird: 06 February 2017
• Finale Deadline: 06 March 2017

Aptamers 2017
2017-04-11 to 2017-04-12
Oxford, UK

Aptamers 2017 – the 4th annual meeting of the International Society on Aptamers – will bring together academic and industrial aptamer researchers and solution providers from across the globe. The symposium will address therapeutic, diagnostic, analytical as well as basic research applications of aptamers and invites oral and poster abstracts. We particularly encourage final year doctoral students and early/mid-career postdoctoral researchers/junior group leaders to submit oral abstracts, as we believe this event will provide their research an excellent exposure, critical analysis by attending senior researchers and new career opportunities. Please contact us on AptamersOxford@gmail.com, or visit our website at http://libpubmedia.co.uk/aptamers-2017, should you require any further information.

Aptamers 2017 will be co-hosted with our 3rd symposium on antisense and therapeutic oligonucleotides, Oligo 2017 Oxford (http://lpmhealthcare.com/oligo-2017-oxford), on 10th April. We very much look forward to welcoming you to Oxford in April.
