Modern sequencing (next and second generation sequencing) technologies are revolutionizing genomic analysis by improving existing high throughput methods and making other analyses feasible for the first time. While the potential applications of the new sequencing technologies are boundless, the extraction of quantitative information from such data is severely limited by a lack of statistical methods. This conference will provide a platform to discuss the latest statistical research in next generation sequencing data analysis and promote potential collaborations among researchers with interest and expertise in this area.
