Plenary Session: Sequencing Selects 
X-Gen Congress and Expo is proud to launch Sequencing Selects. Matching the NGS platform or service
provider for your research project is a balancing act of cost-quality-quantity. The best qualified people
to help answer these questions are customers. Hear real-world experiences from selected users hosted
by NGS platform and service providers. Compare, contrast, and come away with concrete conclusions
