Applications of Next-Generation Sequencing in Oncology and Human Genetics

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is emerging as a valuable method for obtaining a deeper and more accurate look into the molecular underpinnings of individual tumors. With targeted therapies becoming the new standard of care in oncology. In November 2019, we organized a conference entitled "Applications of Next-Generation Sequencing in Oncology and Human Genetics", where we presented the current challenges and solutions in the field of rare diseases, human genetics and cancer treatment.
