The Future of Next Generation Sequencing Summit is a two day networking event encompassing revolutionary keynotes, innovative case studies, and panel discussions. It brings together experts from the fields of Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, Hospitals, and Academics to discuss how AI and Blockchain technologies are impacting the Future of Medicine. Moreover, it aims to discuss the challenges and explore best-practices that include DNA Sequencing, RNA Sequencing, Whole-Genome Sequencing, Advances in NGS Technology and many more.
There is no doubt that Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) is a massively parallel sequencing technology. It offers ultra-high throughput, scalability, and speed. Moreover, this technology is used to determine the order of nucleotides in entire genomes or targeted regions of DNA or RNA. Over the period of time, NGS has revolutionized the biological sciences, allowing labs to perform a wide variety of applications and study biological systems at a level never before possible. In today's time, complex genomics questions demand a depth of information beyond the capacity of traditional DNA sequencing technologies. Surprisingly, NGS has filled that gap and become an everyday tool to address these questions.
Additionally, Next-Generation Sequencing makes large-scale whole-genome sequencing (WGS) accessible and practical for the average researcher. It is appreciable how it enables scientists to analyze the entire human genome in a single sequencing experiment or sequence thousands to tens of thousands of genomes in one year.
For several years, the next-generation high throughput sequencing technologies have been available. Technologies like these and bioinformatics provide rapid and low cost DNA sequencing for biological material which include plant viruses and viroids. However, NGS platforms, which have different underlying biochemistries and differ in sequencing protocol, produce large amounts, around millions to billions of generally short DNA sequence reads.
Commendably, the NGS industry has expanded with several companies marketing different models of sequencing platforms, most recently the bench top platforms. In order to bring next-sequencing technologies into many more laboratories to expand their use in biological research and diagnostics, the sequencing platforms are continually improved to become faster, more efficient and cheaper.
It is quite clear that the future directions in precision medicine consist of the empowerment of NGS technologies with parallel approaches, including artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) methods and deep learning (DL) methods. However, DL sequencing approaches allow parallel reading of numerous individual DNA segments. And, ML sequencing approaches facilitate assessing enormous sets of genomic information aiming to recognise new gene functions and gene regulation regions.
In addition, new bioinformatics tools are developed to address current limitations in the treatment of genomic data and enhance the overall performance of data analysis toward the acquisition of new knowledge around the interpretation of rare genomic variants.
“ With the advent of genetic engineering the time required for the evolution of new species may literally collapse.” - Dee Hock

Group Futurista's first event- Post-GDPR/Future of Next-Generation Sequencing Virtual Summit was held in Berlin on 8th & 9th of November. Cross-industrial representatives were invited along with advocates, techno-sociologists, researches, and government representatives
to draw a bigger picture of the global impact of GDPR on businesses, societies, and cultures across the world.
The event helped many businesses to be better prepared with GDPR and other tech regulations that needed to be enforced. The Futurista Start-up Elevate platform allowed start-ups like Hotshot to showcase their solutions and collaborate with industry-leading organizations.
Another feather in our cap- Future of Digital Onboarding and Customer Experience Summit which was held on the 11th & 12th of April 2019, in London.
The event brought together some of the key decision makers from the biggest organizations, innovative Start-ups, and Governments around the globe, to discuss the various challenges and explore best-practices to optimize Digital Onboarding, Customer Experience and Identity Management processes for financial institutions.
