Sept. 24-25, 2014 Public Workshop: Next Generation Sequencing Standards
This public workshop on next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology, data formats standardization and promotion of interoperability protocols aims to facilitate establishing protocols for ensuring the safety and quality of next-generation sequencing (NGS)-related-information without sacrificing scientific merit or interfering with innovative processes. This will be achieved by engaging NGS stakeholders in a forum to discuss the current use of NGS technology and the development of standards for related information.
In addition, it will highlight FDA-proposed guidelines for addressing NGS data storage, archival and quality control steps needed for computational biology protocols related to FDA relevant regulatory science.
