5PM BST | 12PM EDT | 9AM PDT

In this open discussion webinar, we talk to the experts in DNA sequencing and DNA from saliva about what’s trending in whole genome sequencing (WGS). Joshua Burgess, Manager of Research and Development at Illumina, and Rafal Iwasiow, Vice President of Research and Development at DNA Genotek, will discuss why human genomic research is moving towards WGS and what this means for research study design and planning. They will also look at the viability of saliva as a DNA sample source, as compared to blood, for whole genome sequencing using Illumina's Nextera DNA Flex to produce high quality libraries for WGS. The discussion will follow with open Q&A from attendees.
