|SS1|| Tools for Next Generation Sequencing data analysis
Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) is a broadly used term to describe the most recent sequencing technologies, including Illumina, Roche/454, Ion Torrent, SOLiD and Pacific Biosciences. These technologies allow the quick and cost-effective sequencing of DNA and RNA, opening new ways for the study of genomics, transcriptomics, gene expression, and systems biology, among others.
The continuous improvements on those technologies (longer read length, lesser base calling errors, greater throughput, etc.) and the broad application of NGS in many research fields, is producing a continuous increase of data requiring improved bioinformatics tools. Therefore, we invite authors to submit original research, pipelines and review articles on topics helping in the study of NGS data, such as (but not limited to):
Prof. M. Gonzalo Claros Diaz, PhD, Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, University of Malaga (Spain).
Dr. Javier Perez Florido, PhD, Genomics and Bioinformatics Platform of Andalusia (GBPA), Seville, (Spain).
