Long read, long reach sequencing workshop

Preliminary workshop announcement

There has been considerable interest in long read, long range sequencing technologies recently. In response, we are planning to hold a long read, long range workshop at ANU in November.

Overall, the focus of the workshop will be non-model systems. The objective will be to demonstrate how long read/long range interaction approaches enable researchers to answer new questions.

We will cover different long read technologies (Nanopore, PacBio, LongAS, 10x) and combine with other long range interaction technologies (e.g HiC).

The workshop will include sample preparation and data analysis, and the majority of the workshop will be hands-on, e.g. HMW DNA extraction on own samples, HiC library preps, nanopore library prep (fongle), data analysis.

All protocols will be available publicly on protocols.io.

Further information, including registration, will be available soon.

Organiser: Benjamin Schwessinger (benjamin.schwessinger@anu.edu.au).
