Long-Read Sequencing – Postponed to Spring 2021 (Exact Dates TBD)

Location: The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine - JAX Genomic Medicine, Farmington CT

This event has been postponed to Spring, 2021.

After careful consideration, The Jackson Laboratory has made the decision to postpone this event due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. We are currently working on rescheduling the event for Spring of 2021.

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 JAX Courses and Workshops website will be updated with rescheduled dates of events as soon as they 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.


Long-read sequencing is now the standard in genomics for assembling genomes, identifying structural variants, sequencing through repetitive regions, and phasing critical variants. Through this four-day workshop, participants will learn about the technology and molecular biology driving major long-read sequencing platforms, including those from Pacific Biosciences, Oxford Nanopore, Bionano, and more. Expert users and technology developers 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. The program includes 2 days of presentations with 2 days of hands-on bioinformatics and laboratory-based tutorials. Participants will have the opportunity to network with genomics experts and industry leaders during the event.
