Next Generation Sequencing Workshop.

Jose R. Valverde


In November 2009, CASPUR, EMBRACE, EMBnet, the Italian Society of Bioinformatics and UPPMAX allied to organize a workshop on Next Generation Sequencing technologies and data analysis tools focusing on "Building Next Generation Sequencing platforms and pipeline solutions". The workshop took place in Rome and was addressed to Bioinformaticians interested in discussing issues related to the management of platforms and analysis of next-generation sequencing (NGS) data. In addition to lectures from leading scientists in the field, the workshop also included a hands-on session, a “hackaton” where participants could try by themselves some of the tools to solve an unpublished, real world problem in genome sequence assembly. The workshop web site is located at
