Abstract

 

Biological discoveries are tightly dependent on technology. For 
example, the inventions of microscopy and crystallography have 
dramatically expanded our knowledge of the microbial world and 
molecular structures; the advents of molecular engineering and PCR 
have significantly enhanced our capability in molecular cloning and 
DNA amplification to facilitate our understanding of how the gene 
expression is regulated in the cell. Here comes the sequencing 
technology of the post-genomic era. What can we expect from the 
Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) and the upcoming nanopore 
sequencing? To address these questions, we need to know what the 
sequencing technologies can do for us. During this talk, I will 
discuss the applications of sequencing technologies in biological 
investigations, especially for the studies of gene expression and 
regulation in normal eukaryotic cells and dysregulation in cancer 
cells. All are welcome.
