NextGen Solutions – NGS Trainings, R & Python for Biological Data Analysis

NextGen Solutions – NGS Trainings & R for Biological Data Analysis

NGS Transparent LogoOne of the pioneering groups of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data analysis in Pakistan stationed at COMSATS Islamabad.  The primary mission of our High-Throughput Sequencing and Analysis Unit is to facilitate the unravelling of genetic information across the large and diverse collection of animals, plants and microbes that are the research focus of many of our faculty.

The unit aims at developing a core facility to prepare libraries, generate DNA templates and sequence data using Next Generation sequencing platforms. In addition, the facility provides training and workshops on High-throughput data analysis.

Our services also include consultation and assistance in all aspects of a sequencing project. Currently, we are creating awareness about this novel and dynamic area of NGS as well as developing skills through training workshops and seminars. The money collected through these workshops will be used for social welfare projects.
