The French language was the main language used at a regional meeting in Paris, held on the 7th of November 2014 (Faculté de médecine de Cochin, amphithéâtre Luton, Rez-de-chaussée
24, rue du Faubourg Saint-Jacques. 75014 Paris). The title of this meeting was “Journée « NGS en diagnostic »”. More than 300 participants attended the meeting. The main topics of the meeting were the EuroGentest guidelines, quality assessment, variant analysis, bioinformatics, the selection of technologies in relation to the reimbursement system, ethics, and validation procedures. We regret that not all participants could be seated and apologize for this. Considering the large number of participants and the positive feedback, we conclude that this meeting was a real success. Programme
