This event has been postponed.
After careful consideration, The Jackson Laboratory has made the decision to postpone this event due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
The health, safety, and security of our attendees and guests are The Jackson Laboratory’s highest priority. We have taken this action out of an abundance of caution, in response to safety concerns as well as increasing travel restrictions and quarantines that are being implemented worldwide.
Specific information regarding registration transfers or refunds to rescheduled events will be emailed shortly. The Courses & Conferences calendar will be updated when new dates are confirmed. We thank all of our attendees for their patience, and our heartfelt sympathies go out to everyone impacted by this global health crisis.
Registration is Open
Jun 23 - 26
Long-read sequencing offers new opportunities for assembling genomes, characterizing microbiomes, identifying structural variants and RNA isoforms, and phasing critical variants.
This four-day workshop will explore long-read sequencing technologies and will provide a forum for scientist studying technology, software, applications, and clinical research to network and learn from each other.
Participants will learn about the technology and molecular biology driving each long-read sequencing platform, their commonalities and differences, and hear about their applications to basic, translational, and clinical genomics.
The workshop is appropriate for graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, faculty, and other scientists or clinicians interested in long-read sequencing.
All events will be held at The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine, located on the UConn Health Campus in Farmington. Participants are responsible for their own travel arrangements.
The closest airport is Bradley International Airport, BDL which is approximately 45 minutes away. Car rental, public transportation, and taxi services are available from Bradley International Airport.
