Online PR News – 24-April-2014 – San Diego – Clive Brown, Chief Technology Officer at Oxford Nanopore will give a featured presentation at the 4th Annual Next Generation Sequencing Conference on June 19-20, 2014 in San Diego, CA by GTC.
Clive Brown is responsible for all of the Oxford Nanopore’s product-development activities. Dr. Bown leads the specification and design of the Company’s nanopore-based sensing platform, including strand DNA/RNA sequencing and protein-sensing applications with a strong focus on scientific excellence and successful adoption by the scientific community.
Clive joined Oxford Nanopore from the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute (Cambridge, UK) where he played a key role in the adoption and exploitation of 'next generation' DNA sequencing platforms. This involved helping to set up the world’s largest single installation of Illumina (formerly Solexa) Genome Analyzers in a production sequencing environment, initially used to pioneer the 1000 genomes project.
GTCBio’s 4th Next Generation Sequencing Conference will provide a forum for leaders in the next generation sequencing field to present and discuss the current and future applications of the technology as well as share strategies, best practices and protocols on the usage of the tool. Attend this conference to network with fellow scientists and researchers and learn about sequencing technologies that are available, how they are being applied and strategies for handling the data.
This conference is also part of the Nucleic Acid Summit, which consists of this conference and three other conferences:
1) Non-Coding RNAs and RNAi Research & Therapeutics
2) Bioinformatics & Pharmacogenomics: Managing and Analyzing Big Data
3) Nucleic Acid Research & Discovery
