OGT to showcase new RNA-Seq Service in live webinar

Addressing the challenges of RNA-Seq data analysis to generate meaningful results

 
PRLog - Oct. 30, 2012 - Oxford Gene Technology (http://www.ogt.co.uk/) (OGT), provider of innovative clinical genetics and diagnostic solutions to advance molecular medicine, will host a live webinar on Thursday 15th November (3pm BST). (http://view6.workcast.net/register?pak=1809925692842990&referrer=PR) Dr Daniel Swan, Senior NGS Computational Biologist at OGT, will discuss how RNA-Seq (http://www.ogt.co.uk/services/737_rna-seq_service?PR) is revolutionising the field of transcriptomics by delivering unprecedented biological insight into the way cells function. He will also explain how this can only be reliably achieved through good experimental design — ensuring the data generated represents the true biology — and rigorous data analysis procedures.

The 45-minute webinar will be essential viewing for everyone interested in learning why RNA-Seq delivers novel biological discoveries and how best to design an NGS gene expression study that delivers true biological insight. As part of the webinar, Dr Swan will utilise OGT’s NGS data reporting interface, which makes it quick, easy and intuitive to visualise gene and transcript expression levels, identify isoforms and perform SNP and indel analysis for a range of eukaryotes.
