Long-read sequencing technologies have emerged as powerful players in genomics over the last few years. These new technologies have proven their ability to resolve some of the most challenging regions of the genomes, leading, among other things, to the discovery of novel mechanisms of disease.
This five-day program includes three days of plenary sessions with the participation of renowned speakers, expert users and technology developers who will share information about applications in basic and translational genomic science and explore the commonalities and differences in long-read sequencing technologies. The program also includes one day of hands-on laboratory (wet-lab) sessions and an additional day of sessions to uncover computational approaches for effectively analyzing long-read sequencing data with state-of-the-art tools. Participants will have the opportunity to network with genomics experts and industry leaders during the event.
Topics Include: Human genomes, long-read sequencing, computational biology, applications to non-human mammals and plants, transcriptomics, epigenomics, microbiome and infectious disease, disease research and clinical applications, and technology performance, benchmarking and rigor.
