Long Read Single-Molecule Real-Time (SMRT) Sequencing


It is with great pleasure the National Genomics Infrastructure, NGI, announce the second SMRT meeting to take place on November 16-17 2016 in Uppsala, aiming to provide information about state-of-the-art PacBio applications, as well to inspire the scientific community to apply advances of SMRT technology in research.

Day 1 is a scientific symposium; the program can be found here. We will offer an array of inspiring presentations by NGI and PacBio personnel and scientists from different fields of biology and medical sciences about using long-read sequencing in research. Besides, representatives of BioNano Genomics and DNANexus will present what their companies have to offer to take results obtained from SMRT sequencing to the next level.

Day 2 will consist of interactive workshops on different SMRT applications, which will cover experimental design, sample preparation, basic bioinformatics and possibilities for tertiary analysis.

There will be time slots allocated for individual project discussions with NGI and PacBio specialists during both days.

Please visit the event homepage for more information.
