It was only a few weeks ago that IBM Watson (cognitive system) and Illumina (manufacturer of sequencing devices based on Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology) came out. In the context of the indication tumors an intensified co-operation is to arise. In addition to a very high sequencing capacity, NGS allows for the clonal sequencing of individual molecules, a higher diagnostic sensitivity by parallel sequencing of entire gene panels, simplified handling as well as the parallel and therefore more cost-effective processing of the samples. In other…Continue Reading “Next Generation Sequencing – Interdisciplinary cooperation MLL (Germany), IBM Watson (USA), Illumina (USA)”
