This meeting will focus on the current scientific data and knowledge related to the use of next generation sequencing technologies for adventitious virus detection in biological products. Discussions will include ongoing efforts and future needs toward standardization and validation of the technical and bioinformatics steps involved in NGS for its applications in characterization and safety evaluation of biologics, including human and animal vaccines. The meeting will bring together representatives from industry, academia, technology providers, and international regulatory bodies for developing a scientific consensus regarding readiness of NGS for detection of adventitious viruses in biologics.
