Agilent Automation Solutions has announced that it has posted a recorded webinar, 'Solutions for applying automation to next-generation sequencing sample prep', online.
The webinar features viewpoints expressed by three experts in the field, who share examples from their laboratories on how to effectively adopt and utilise automation for Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) applications.
With presentations from the Hudson Alpha Institute of Biotechnology, Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard and Agilent Automation Solutions, the webinar provides the audience with a comprehensive overview of the developments in NGS technologies, with an emphasis on the challenges that are routinely encountered at various stages in the sequencing and analysis of samples.
It offers detailed information on the specific challenges associated with sample preparation and the benefits of using automation to alleviate some of the bottlenecks.
Further information is provided on ways to increase and improve the sample throughput in sequencing and the application of automated NGS platforms in areas such as cancer genetics, CNS research and targeted resequencing applications, such as effective whole exon sequencing.
