Early Researcher Next-Generation Sequencing Symposium 2011

Welcome to the official website of the Early Researcher Next-Generation Sequencing Symposium 2011

This meeting will bring together young researcher that have hands-on experience with Next-Generation Sequencing data analysis. It will be structured in open and closed sessions. While the former will concentrate on presenting the state of the art to participants and scientific audience, the later will focus on common problems and bottlenecks in data analysis. Furthermore, forthcoming challenges and still missing software solutions will be discussed.

If you plan to attend any of the presentations, please notify us by sending an email to lfbach@mpi-inf.mpg.de, because the number of available seats is limited.
