    13:10-13:45pm
    A new era of next generation sequencing technology, from Panel Sequencing to Whole Genome Sequencing
    Genomics is a striking buzz word in today's scientific and business discussions. Even more amazing is the outreach it has already shown into the daily news and people’s personal lives, by changing the outcome of infectious pandemics, pregnancies, cancer therapies and helping new-borns and young children with inherited diseases to overcome previously unsurmountable hurdles in human history.

    With the genomics field evolving at light speed, innovation is key to keep this development alive. Illumina is constantly improving their products and widening the portfolio to give researchers and clinicians access to new information in a multitude of applications.

    It is crucial to stay updated on new releases and developments to achieve the best results in studies looking at genetic content and variation. Here we will discuss how cutting-edge research is driving single cell research, epigenetics and large-scale population studies, using next generation sequencing (NGS) and array technology, to discover new findings and therefore paving the way to change in how we will practice medicine in the future.

    Illumina is playing a crucial role in this transformation being the market leader and following a single vision: To improve human health by unlocking the power of the genome!


    Thomas Patrick Klemm(Sr Sales Specialist, APJ)
    After graduating from the University of Tuebingen (Germany) in bioinformatics and biochemistry in 2009 Thomas undertook an appointment at Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School Singapore in Professor Terri Young's and Steve Rozen's laboratory in 2010 where he was involved in exome data analysis for hereditary diseases and oncology.

    In August 2012, he joined Illumina Singapore as Sequencing Segment Manager for Singapore, SEA and India. In 2014, he added responsibility for the ANZ region as well as all distributor countries in Asia, including South Korea, managing the whole product portfolio as a Senior Sales Specialist. Since August 2017, Thomas has moved into the focused role of Senior Human Genotyping Specialist, managing the whole human microarray portfolio across the region, reviving the technology use and driving adoption in new markets in Asia Pacific.

    NexteraTM DNA Flex ---- Your Solution for Whole Genome Library Prep Directly from Primary Samples
    While advances in next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology have accelerated the pace of genomic research, many laboratories continue to experience bottle-necks during the library preparation phase of the NGS workflow. Here we are introducing our latest launch of Nextera DNA Flex Library Prep Kit, which integrates DNA extraction, fragmentation, library preparation, and library normalization steps to deliver the fastest and most flexible workflow in the Illumina library prep portfolio.

    Beyond providing a rapid workflow, the Nextera DNA Flex Library Preparation Kit offers unprecedented flexibility for input type, input amount, and a broad range of applications including human WGS, environmental metagenomics, plant and animal research, tumor profiling and more. From human whole-genome sequencing (WGS) to small microbial plasmids, the Nextera DNA Flex library Preparation Kit delivers even genome coverage with the proven accuracy of Illumina sequencing by synthesis chemistry.


    Woojung Shin(Sr Field Applications Scientist, Korea)
    After graduating from Korea University graduate school of life and environmental science, Woojung was working for cosmetic company for two years as researcher. In July 2008, she joined BMS as Field Applications Scientist (FAS) and she had supported GenomeAnalyzer and Hiseq2000 successfully, which is early model of Illumina NGS system.

    In May 2012, she joined Illumina Singapore as a first Korean FAS and she has accomplished number of new projuct lanuches (Nextseq, HiseqX10, Hiseq4000 and Novaseq) and made solide relationship with customers. She is now focusing on POP and trial test of new assay methods and she is continuing to make steady progress in growing clinical markets.

    14:30-15:40pm
    Bioinformatics - An Overview to Data Management and Analysis Options on BaseSpace Sequence Hub
    This workshop will overview the key features and functionality of the BaseSpace Sequence Hub. We will discuss the use of BaseSpace Sequence Hub for sequencing run and data management. During the workshop, there will be hands-on user experience focusing on where to find sequencing data information, how to share data with colleagues and collaborators, as well as managing sequencing run and analysis data. We will also guide users to perform data analysis using the BaseSpace Apps, followed by visualization of the results to draw biological meaning.


    Yue Ying Tan(Sr Bioinformatics Scientist, South Asia Pacific)
    Yue Ying has been with Illumina since August 2012 where she joined us from The Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology in Singapore. During this time, she has accumulated a long laundry list of achievements in both pre- and post-sales support of bioinformatics within APAC, most notably the customer solutions excellence award and nominations (2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017). Yue Ying is now a proof-of-concept data analysis veteran, having worked on successful pre-sales projects in bacteria whole genome sequencing, forensics, metagenomics, mitochondrial analysis and viral detection to name a few. Yue Ying also leads the interactions with our sales channel partners on all things bioinformatics and has been piloting a number of initiatives to upskill our customers in the region.
