Information Day for Human Genome Sequencing at SciLifeLab


SciLifeLab has acquired 10 Illumina HiSeq X (X Ten) sequencers, which will form the basis for offering whole genome sequencing to the Swedish scientific community. We are pleased to invite you to this workshop, which will provide information about different aspects of human sequencing, ranging from practical questions about sample handling to ethical issues and the data handling and analysis tools. We will also present the reference database being established as well as our ambition to build a community facilitating sharing of data when feasible and desired by the respective scientists.

We will also discuss the national projects in genomics: The Swedish Genomes Program and the Biodiversity Program. In November 2014, 21 projects were granted funding. A second call for national projects will be launched in January, 2015 with closing date in March, 2015.
