Guidance documents NGS

Inter-European Union Reference Laboratories Working Group on Next Generation Sequencing


The documents  are meant to provide guidance to the laboratories in the area of application of NGS and have been produced by the working group with the aim of being diffused to all the networks of NRLs National Reference Laboratories (National Reference Laboratories). Links to these documents at the respective curators' websites are given below.
