The MAQC Society is pleased to announce a new series of SEQC2 (Sequencing and Quality Control Phase 2) Webinars addressing the many challenges of analysis of massive datasets that come from Next-Gen Sequencing (NGS). This year, in 2022, MAQC offers a new webinar series on diverse topics related to NGS: copy-number pathogenicity, structural variation detection, use of internal standards and synthetic controls for variant detection, formalin-fixation impacts, and general reproducibility challenges.
On 29 March the webinar is titled: “Exploring best practices for structural variation detection in a cancer reference sample with multiple NGS platforms” by Yongmei Zhao Ph. D. who is the Bioinformatics Manager of the Sequencing Facility Bioinformatics Group at National Cancer Institute/Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research. She has over 20 years of working experience in the fields of bioinformatics, genomics, and high-performance computing. She leads a team of bioinformatics analysts and provides Next-generation Sequencing (NGS) analysis and bioinformatics support to investigators at National Cancer Institute. Her group is also actively engaging in research community efforts for benchmarking studies aiming for the best practice development in NGS data analysis.
