Studying the Transcriptome with Next-Generation Sequencing

  • Vice President and Distinguished Scientist Illumina
      Dr. Schroth is currently a Vice President and Distinguished Scientist at Illumina where he directs the Core Applications Group based in San Diego.

      He obtained his Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of California at Davis and has been working in the field of next-generation sequencing (NGS) for more than a decade as part of Illumina (and Solexa).

      In his research Dr. Schroth uses NGS to study genomics, gene structure, expression and regulation and applies this to genomic projects in the fields of cancer, microbiology and infectious disease.

      Over the course of his career Dr. Schroth has published over 90 peer reviewed research papers and holds 17 U.S. patents.


    Next-Generation Sequencing is enabling scientists to study the transcriptome in ways never before possible. During this session with Illumina Distinguished Scientist, Dr. Gary Schroth, you will learn how a variety of RNA-Seq methods can be used to profile subsets of genes or the entire transcriptome (both coding and non-coding). Case studies will be presented for how challenging samples like single-cell and FFPE samples can be elucidated with RNA-Seq technology. Dr. Schroth will also discuss the future state of transcriptome analysis technologies.
