Is NGS paving the way?
NGS applications are set to be the 'next big thing' in forensic science. The emergence of NGS technologies used in new state of the art laboratories is dominating the forensic technologies and service market. NGS platforms have provided a breakthrough to researchers with many government institutions, police forces and bureaus actively seeking to implement this technology to their labs.
Oxford Global's highly anticipated 2nd Annual Genetics in Forensics congress scheduled for the 14 -15 of March 2017, London will be showcasing the latest tools and technologies and cutting edge presentations on NGS and other novel technologies.
