Thumbs up BGI Bioinformatics Workshop on Diseases

BGI Bioinformatics Workshop on Diseases
Dec. 16-20, 2013, Shenzhen, China
  With the application of high-throughput sequencing technology and the development of genomics, the study model of human diseases has been gradually shifted from hypothesis-oriented to data-oriented. Such data-oriented, large-scale, industrialized study mode, is taking great advance to study from the genomic level, transcriptomic level as well as the epigenomic level, which makes it possible to go on a multi-level research. In order to provide our researchers with innovative iideas, new strategies and techniques, this workshop will focus on sequencing technology in DNA, RNA and epigenetic level for human disease research, which includes methods and prospects. This workshop will introduce whole genome resequencing, exome sequencing and personalized target region sequencing technologies at DNA level.While transcriptome sequencing engages to identify complex disease genotyping and molecular markers, screen drug targets and find out related genes or structural variation at RNA level. As for epigenomic level, you will see the map of whole genome methylation and that of histone / transcription factor binding regions through bisulfite sequencing, MeDIP sequencing and ChIP sequencing, which helps to illustrate the pathogenic mechanisms of epigenetic modification in related disease.
  We are looking forward to your participation at BGI Workshop.
