The e-seminar also considers other factors in setting up an NGS facility, such as the need for adequate data storage and data streaming capabilities.
The information presented will equip the viewer with the necessary knowledge and skills to broaden their scope of food safety, authenticity, and quality testing, and is essential viewing for any molecular biologist working in the area of foods analysis, who is considering extending their knowledge into this technique.
