Long-Read Sequencing Meeting

Long-read technologies (PacBio, 10x Genomics and Oxford Nanopore) become more and more popular in modern genomics due to their ability to resolve structural re-arrangements, copy number variations, repeat expansions, phase genomes, etc. These technologies have revolutionized the field of de novo genome sequencing and lead to the discovery of previously unknown genomic sequences that could not be previously sequenced by the short-read technologies. Other important applications are the whole-length transcript- and direct RNA sequencing that allows unprecedented precision in studies of alternative splicing (PacBio), RNA base modifications (Oxford Nanopore) and single-cell RNA sequencing (10x Genomics).

“The expanding role of prodrugs in drug design and development”. Jarkko Rautio is professor in pharmaceutical chemistry at the School of Pharmacy, University of Eastern Finland (UEF). His research focuses on the chemistry-based methods, especially prodrugs, to overcome drug delivery liabilities of problematic drug candidates. He has published over 50 papers and book chapters on prodrugs – two of these in Nature publication series. Much of his research is currently focusing on exploiting one of the body’s natural mechanisms for transporting amino acids, the LAT1 protein, for targeted drug delivery across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and cancer cells that express this transporter.
