The virtual NGS-CN workshop 2020

Virtual Second Workshop for the NGS-CN on the 17th of November


The one-day virtual workshop will provide an overview of the latest updates and developments in the field of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) as presented by the NGS-CN sites. This is a good workshop for scientists on the step of “How to get started” and “who to contact” for their sequencing projects.
