What are the top bioinformatics concerns for researchers that perform next-generation sequencing? We wanted to understand their “top of mind” concerns and not prompt users with a list of potential answers from which to choose. So, we asked over 400 scientists in government, private, commercial and academic labs in the United States, all involved in performing next generation sequencing,…read more >
