Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) Workshop
November 10-11, 2016
This special focus meeting is designed to provide education and facilitate networking for laboratories that want to learn more about NGS technology, are considering whether or not to pursue NGS-based typing, or are in the process of validating/implementing NGS-based HLA typing methods. The program will include a review of fundamental aspects of NGS-based methods, guidance for selecting an approach, description of challenges that can be encountered, criteria for validation, and suggestions for integrating NGS-based methods into routine laboratory operation. Representatives from small to large labs will describe their experience with NGS and be available for networking. Vendors will provide their perspectives through exhibits that will be available throughout the meeting and a luncheon session featuring sequential vendor presentations.
