Long-read sequencing is rapidly becoming the standard in genomics, for assembling genomes, identifying structural variants, sequencing through repetitive regions, and phasing critical variants. Through this 3-day workshop, participants, including graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and faculty, will learn about the technology and molecular biology driving each sequencing platform, including those from Pacific Biosciences, 10X Genomics, and Oxford Nanopore. Expert users, developers and representatives from long-read sequencing companies will share information about their applications in basic and translational genomic science, and will explore the commonalities and differences in long-read sequencing technologies.
Participants will have the opportunity to tour The Jackson Laboratory’s Sequencing Center and network with genomics experts and industry leaders at the Welcome Reception!
Registration is now closed.

The Jackson Laboratory is pleased to present a new workshop on cutting-edge, long read sequencing technologies. This intensive workshop will be offered in the new 183,000 sq. ft. Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine research facility in Farmington, Connecticut on April 23-25, 2018. The goal of the workshop is to train scientists, including pre-doctoral, post-doctoral and new investigators, in the use of long read sequencing platforms in genomic research.
Long-read sequencing is rapidly becoming the standard in genomics, for assembling genomes, identifying structural variants, sequencing through repetitive regions, and phasing critical variants. This workshop will focus on data generation and analysis for leading long-read sequencing platforms: Pacific Biosciences, 10X Genomics, and Oxford Nanopore. Speakers include expert users, developers, and representatives from long-read sequencing companies. Talks will describe the technologies underlying each platform and their applications in basic and translational genomic science. This workshop also features hands-on sessions for participants to learn experimental protocols or bioinformatic analyses. Participants will learn practical differences and commonalities of the leading long-read sequencing technologies to understand when and how to use each platform.
