In recent years, long-read DNA sequencing technologies has replaced short-read sequencing as the gold standard solution for a wide range of genomics applications. In addition to producing high quality de novo genome assembly, long-read technologies can be used to study complex structural variation, full-length RNA isoforms, detection of epigenetic signals, and much more. The adaptation of long-read sequencing is sweeping through several areas of the life sciences including agricultural, environmental, and medical research.
Join us in Uppsala in October to catch up with the latest developments in long-read sequencing technologies and their applications, get inspired by peers presenting their research, and enjoy discussions with leading experts and company representatives.
The National Genomics Infrastructure (NGI) is hosted by Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab), a Swedish national center for molecular biosciences with focus on health and environmental research.
NGI is one of SciLifeLab’s largest technical platforms both in terms of number of projects and number of users. It provides access to technology for massively parallel/next generation DNA sequencing, genotyping at all scales and associated bioinformatics support to researchers based in Sweden. It comprises four facilities, NGI Stockholm (Application Development and Production) and NGI Uppsala (SNP&SEQ Technology Platform and Uppsala Genome Center).
To inform the scientific community, both in Sweden and internationally, about the latest advances in long-read sequencing technologies and their applications.
Anyone interested in long-read sequencing technology is welcome. We hope that this event will provide useful information to a broad community, from savvy users to beginners and everybody else who would just like to get more information about this sequencing type.
