Description

1st SoCal TBA Trends in Biotech Mini-Symposium: Next Generation Sequencing and Precision Medicine

SoCal Taiwanese Biotech Association presents our debut event in Los Angeles - 1st SoCal TBA “Trends in Biotech” mini-symposium. The Trends in Biotech Mini-Symposium is a half-day event focusing on one of the major trends in biotech. The event features speakers and attendees from leading biotech companies, start-up and research labs.

This year the topic will focus on the latest trend in the field of NGS and precision medicine. Rapid adoption of NGS in genomic medicine has been driven by low cost, high throughput sequencing and rapid advances in our understanding of the genetic bases of human diseases. Today, the NGS method has dominated sequencing space in genomic research, and quickly entered clinical practice. Precision medicine aims to identify the right drug, for the right patient, at the right dose, and at the right time. The ability of NGS to analyze the comprehensive landscape of genetic alterations brings promises to diseases that have a highly complex and heterogeneous genetic composition.
