Conferences, Events and Workshops

Having built up a solid network in the life sciences area bioteXcel now offers event management.




This event took place in November 2013.  You can find a summary of the NGS 2013 Manchester here:


The aim of our Next Generation Sequencing conference is to address key issues being faced by clinical genetics laboratories as well as other labs that are implementing Next Generation Sequencing (NGS).  Whilst NGS is a very powerful technology that holds the promise of unlocking the secrets of DNA sequences on a large scale, its implementation has not been as smooth as anticipated.

Our previous NGS Workshop & Symposium in Oxford focused on bioinformatics alone, whereas the current NGS conference in Manchester will take the theme a step further by looking at bioinformatics as well as other related topics.  Issues which have become recognized bottlenecks within NGS applications include but are not limited to Sample Preparation/Library Generation, Bioinformatics Data Analysis and Data Storage.

The NGS 2013 Manchester conference will bring together leading experts from widely diverse backgrounds to tackle these matters by networking, discussing the common bottlenecks and working with each other to try and mitigate these issues.  Researchers working in the areas of micro RNA’s, Exome & Genomic sequencing, NGS panels, inherited diseases, expression analysis, viral genomics to name but a few areas can now listen to each other and find effective strategies and partners.

The programme includes workshops and talks in:

  • Bioinformatics Data Analysis
  • Data Visualization
  • Predicting Functional effects of DNA variants
  • Sample Preparation


Who should attend:


  • All NGS users, researchers and students
  • Bioinformaticians
  • NHS & Private Labs, Pharma and Biotech Companies, CRO’s, Service Providers
   … and all those interested in the latest developments of:
  • Bioinformatics
