To finish up our NGS 2014 series, we're joined by Sami Amr, Director of the Sequencing Core at Harvard's Partners Center. Sami and his colleagues are using NGS for ever more clinical applications. How must sample prep improve as genomics goes clinical? Will we ever get to a one-touch system? Which sequencing platform does Sami prefer? These are some of the questions the hands-on lab director addresses in today's interview.
