Next - generation sequencing (NGS) technology revolution has brought an influx of large-scale data, where storage and management, processing and integration, validation for quality, has become quite a challenge in biomedical industry. FDA and other regulatory bodies have been working to develop a regulatory framework for NGS applications in various fields, based on validated analytical standards that would ensure that NGS tests produce accurate and reliable results.

In order to find answers to biomedical questions, ranging from evolutionary heritage to the functioning of cellular molecular machinery, and address the challenges faced, NGS data analysis and bioinformatics solutions have to be discussed among all the stakeholders.

After the overwhelming response from our last annual, MarketsandMarkets Conferences is pleased to announce the ‘2nd annual NGS Data Analysis and Informatics Conference' to be held on 6th - 7th February 2017 in San Diego, CA – USA, a conference that will be a platform to combine unique perspectives from a variety of researchers, engineers, biostatisticians and software developers from pharma and research community involved in NGS data analysis.

This event is co-located with our
2nd Annual Biomarker Conference and 2nd Annual Genome Editing & Engineering Conference

Arima Genomics, Inc. is a genomics service provider and research company located in San Diego, California. Founded in 2015 by a core team of genome scientists and entrepreneurs, and funded by service contracts with the pharmaceutical industry, and small business grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Arima's mission is to make haplotype phased genomes part of standard genome sequencing protocols. We obtain complete chromosome-length haplotypes of human genomes by generating three-dimensional (3D) reads which are sequenced by cost-effective Illumina short-read sequencing. Our technology has many benefits: First, haplotype information can be integrated to study allele-specific gene expression, and cis-regulatory functional analysis of genomes in a haplotype-resolved manner - potentially useful information in drug discovery scenarios. Second, our technology also provides information on 3D genome structure that can be used to link disease-associated variants in non-coding genome to their target genes. Together, haplotypes and 3D genome information are useful for better understanding of human genetic sequence as well as aspects of genome functionality, with applications towards pharmacogenomics, population genetics, and fundamental genome research.
