NOVEL at the III All-Russian Conference "High-performance Sequencing in Genomics”

The III All-Russian Conference "High-performance Sequencing in Genomics" (HSG-2022) was held June 19-24, 2022 in Novosibirsk Akademgorodok. The event brings together such fields as eukaryotic and prokaryotic genomics, metagenomics of microorganism communities, medical genomics, transcriptomics, protein-nucleic acid interactions, and translation.

New methods based on high-performance sequencing and their practical application were discussed at the conference.

Leading experts from Novel participated in this conference.

Mikhail Pomaznoy: "The most important thing at any conference is new contacts. This event is important for us, because NGS Wizard is not yet familiar to everyone. Surprisingly, we managed to make new contacts with people who are working in the neighboring building and did not know about our project. The variety of topics makes the reports interesting, because it allows me to hear about areas that I have nothing to do with. For example, research of bacterial communities of the Barents Sea is something distant, unfamiliar and fascinating for me.”

Maria Starchevskaya: “My report at the conference "High-performance sequencing in genomics" was devoted to metagenomic analysis of Colorado potato beetle genomes. The search for viral genetic sequences is an urgent and challenging task and we developed an analytical software pipeline that performs identification and annotation of viral material in NGS data.”
