An introduction to next generation sequencing for studying omic-environment interactions.

In this talk, first, we review the concept of gene-environmental interaction on the light of emerging results and the use of modern high-throughput technologies; we illustrate its impact on the understanding of complex human diseases. Then, we provide an overview of the methods available to process NGS data with particular emphasis to the detection of genomic variants, the analysis of epigenomic and transcriptional data produced by modern sequencers. Finally, we discuss how multiomic data can be used to improve our way of studying complex diseases and can provide novel research perspectives.
