Workshop on NGS and Bioinformatics through Simulation

The Forensic Technology Center of Excellence (FTCoE) has developed an immersive and interactive virtual simulation tool that guides DNA practitioners through three commercially available Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) forensic laboratory processes. This tool will be showcased at the 27th International Symposium on Human Identification in Minneapolis, Minnesota on September 26, 2016.

Participants will also learn how to analyze STR, SNP, and mtDNA data generated through NGS technologies, and hear first-hand use cases that will aid in future plans for implementation.

Registration is now open for the Symposium and the workshop. Click here to learn more.

ONE OF THE CHALLENGES of writing and editing a magazine is telling a story in a relatively small amount of space. Sometimes it seems like there is never enough room to say everything that needs to be said. I find myself making tough decisions about what parts stay and what parts go.
