The Key to Quality: Sample Preparation DVD
About the DVD:
The emergence of next-generation sequencing technologies is enabling scientists to generate vastly increased data sets from their sequencing experiments. This dramatic increase, however, involves complicated and labor intensive workflows for library preparation. Speakers elaborate on their systems to handle this analysis and sample preparation, addressing the issues of customizability, compatibility and cost effectiveness.
About the Conference:
X-Gen Congress and Expo is the event for the genomics revolution, promoting the cross-fertilization of established and emerging technologies, along with exciting applications for next-generation sequencing. This year’s programming addresses the technological advances enabling faster and cheaper DNA/RNA mapping, creating genomic comparisons and accelerating genomic discoveries. It will also showcase next-generation sequencing platforms creating sequence reads of DNA fragments for genome variation studies, RNA for transcriptome studies, DNA-protein interactions for epigenetic studies, and chromosomal DNA of large genome nucleotide variations for copy number studies.

Emergence of Next Generation Sequencing Technologies
Stevan Jovanovich, Ph.D., President & CEO, IntegenX, Inc.
Biography: Dr. Stevan Jovanovich is President and CEO of IntegenX Inc, a company he co-founded in 2003 to develop integrated sample preparation systems and sample-to-answer systems for the life sciences. At IntegenX he has raised over $36 M in equity funding and $30 M of grants and contracts focused on advanced genomic systems for DNA sequencing, rapid human identification, and biodefense. He leads a team of talented professionals dedicated to building the Apollo platform products to automate genomic workflows. Before co-founding IntegenX, Dr. Jovanovich was Vice President of Global Research at Amersham Biosciences. He holds Bachelor of Science degrees in Physics and Life Sciences from MIT, a Ph.D. in Microbiology from University of California at Davis with a minor in molecular biology, and a Certificate in Object-oriented Programming from the University of California Santa Cruz Extension.
Utilizing the NanoString nCounter Analysis System to Minimize Sample Preparation Requirements for RNA, dsDNA, and miRNA Analysis
Gary Geiss, Ph.D., Principal Scientist, Nanostring Technologies
Biography: Dr. Gary Geiss is Principal Scientist in NanoString Technologies' Research group and has worked extensively on the development of the nCounter analysis platform, new assays and product improvements. He joined NanoString following his post-doctoral work at the University of Washington where worked under the direction of Dr. Michael Katze. His postdoctoral work was focused on investigating viral host cell interactions using genome-wide microarrays. Dr. Geiss holds a PhD from Colorado State University in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology where he researched mechanisms of RNA polymerase I transcription. He also holds a BS in Biology from Lock Haven University, PA.
