OGT hosts successful targeted sequencing workshop at ICHG/ASHG 2011

Tuesday 22 November 2011

Oxford Gene Technology (OGT), provider of innovative genetics and biomarker solutions to advance molecular medicine, recently hosted a highly successful seminar at the International Congress of Human Genetics (ICHG) meeting in Montreal, Canada. The workshop, entitled “Adding value through analysis”, was well attended and outlined how the company’s Genefficiency™ Targeted Sequencing Service can be utilised to deliver rapid and cost-effective human genome analysis. The new service perfectly complements OGT’s portfolio of genomic and expression analysis tools, which are focused on providing meaningful results rather than insurmountable data sets. As well as ease-of-analysis, the new service provides high data-quality via OGT’s internationally-recognised probe design and independently-accredited quality management procedures.

For those that were unable to attend the meeting or want to know more, OGT has made the full presentation available online for free, where it can be viewed ‘on-demand’. Alternatively, to find out more about the full range of products and services offered by OGT, visit www.ogt.co.uk.
