Press release from: Oxford Gene Technology - OGT

OGT’s “Adding value through analysis” workshop to showcase new services

Oxford Gene Technology (OGT), provider of innovative clinical genetics and diagnostic solutions to advance molecular medicine, will host a workshop at this year’s European Society of Human Genetics (ESHG) conference in Amsterdam. The workshop, entitled “Adding value through analysis”, will take place on Saturday the 28th of May and will reveal details of OGT’s new comprehensive targeted sequencing service. Hosted between 11:45 and 13:15 in room E104-105 of the Congress Centre, the seminar will feature presentations from OGT team members including Chief Executive Officer Mike Evans, DPhil, Senior Computational Biologist Jolyon Holdstock, PhD and Head of Computational Biology Volker Brenner, PhD. Each talk will focus on key elements of the new service, culminating in an informal discussion over lunch provided by OGT.

The sheer volume of data generated by next generation sequencing can present a serious obstacle to researchers in terms of data management, storage and analysis. To address this challenge, OGT’s targeted sequencing service is designed to provide meaningful results rather than insurmountable data sets, achieved by utilising OGT’s internationally recognised probe design and data analysis expertise plus independently accredited quality control procedures. The sequencing options available combine seamlessly with other aspects of OGT’s Genefficiency™ genomic services offering to provide the most flexible and powerful solution available for driving your genomic research forward.
