    Biography
      Dr. Shaffer joined QIAGEN in 2009 and has since worked with various technology development groups, the most recent being RNA NGS technologies. He received his Ph.D. in biochemistry and molecular genetics from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in 2008 where his research focused on determining the mechanisms that regulate non-receptor tyrosine kinase expression and activity. Dr. Shaffer did his postdoctoral training at SABiosciences Corporation, now part of QIAGEN. In 2018 he received his M.B.A. from Julius Maximilians University of Wurzburg. Currently, Dr. Shaffer is Associate Director for NGS Assay Technology Research & Development at QIAGEN.

    Abstract

    Next-generation transcriptome and miRNome sequencing are routinely performed on traditional cell or tissue samples, as well as more difficult samples such as FFPE samples and biofluids. Regardless of starting material, high-performance solutions are required for sample prep, library prep, sequencing and data analysis to unlock the secrets hidden in your samples – whether they are differentially-expressed genes/miRNAs, gene fusions or SNPs. Furthermore, it is often prudent to outsource the entire workflow to a service provider, to achieve actionable insights quickly. In this webinar, you will learn about best practices, considerations and tips for sample prep, library prep, sequencing and data analysis/interpretation. Also, we will discuss what to look for when selecting a sequencing core.

    Whatever your interest in RNA sequencing, this webinar will be of great interest!  Join us for a Sample to Insight discussion of RNA sequencing with Dr. Jonathan Shaffer, Associate Director of NGS Assay Technologies.

    Learning Objectives: 

    1. Attendees will learn critical parameters associated with sample prep and sample QC for subsequent NGS
    2. Attendees will understand the variety of NGS library prep and sequencing solutions available for transcriptome and miRNome NGS
    3. Attendees will be exposed to the primary, secondary and tertiary NGS data analysis offerings
