Next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies enable high-throughput sequencing for a multitude of applications, including de novo sequencing, re-sequencing of (subsets of) genomic DNA, whole transcriptome sequencing, tag-based transcript sequencing, and metagenomics sequencing. There has been active research in these and other NGS applications resulting in a rapidly developing field. While the second-generation technologies are being further improved, third-generation sequencing is already becoming available and utilized by pioneer researchers. However, because of the rapid developments, many scientists, some just considering the use of NGS technology, have a need for information and sharing of experiences. Furthermore, recent results show applications emerging in important fields including characterization of diseases, gene therapy, epigenomics, virology and agronomy.
