Join us for the Summer of NGS!

QIAGEN Summer 700x233

The weather is heating up here at QIAGEN’s US offices, and so are our NGS technologies! We’ve already come out with several advances over the past year, and more is in store for the second half of 2017 – stay tuned!

This July, we held a special webinar series event showcasing a variety of aspects of NGS technology. Our wet-bench expert Matt Finley kicked things off starting on July 6 with hands-on considerations for using the QIAseq Targeted Panels. MicroRNA guru Jon Shaffer joined the fun on July 11 and 18 with a discussion of technology to drastically improve your miRNA-seq and a second presentation devoted to miRNA-seq from biofluids. On July 12 and 19, Dr. Lynne Mullen and Dr. Prakriti Mudvari walked you through QIAGEN’s powerful bioinformatics solutions. Finally, to cap off the month, our Global Product Manager for NGS technologies, Sam Rulli, presented a 5-part series delving into digital NGS technology using Unique Molecular Indices for DNA-seq, RNA-seq and miRNA-seq, as well as single-cell NGS. Find out more about each recorded webinar below!
