Ion World 2013

  • Was a  jam packed and fruitful 2 day scientific forum about Ion semiconductor sequencing and applications in basic and clinical research, including cancer research
  • Plenary sessions, workshops and poster session covered:
    • Gene panel sequencing
    • Aneuploidy assessment in reproductive genetics research
    • Microbial & infectious disease research
    • Exome sequencing
    • Transcriptome sequencing
  • For the larger scientific community there were presentations on the future of healthcare and reimbursement landscape for molecular diagnostics.
