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 4-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, Bionano, and Oxford Nanopore. 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.
