Genome Technology Development Webinar Series

Join us for the Virtual Series: Register now!


The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) and Technology Development Coordinating Center (TDCC) invite you to join a live, virtual series with industry leaders and genome technology developers and users. Recent improvements in the efficiency, accuracy, and complexity of genomic analyses have been driven by new technological advances. The objective of this live, virtual outreach series is to provide postsecondary students, postdoctoral associates/fellows and biomedical researchers with a fundamental understanding of how these new technologies are utilized, as well as emerging opportunities and challenges associated with their optimization and use.  


The series consists of two theme areas. The first will focus on technologies for performing direct RNA sequencing and the analysis of RNA base modifications and single-molecule protein sequencing, which was highlighted by Nature magazine as a technology to watch in 2023.


The second series will focus on advances in single-cell analysis and genome-wide regulatory mechanisms. Speakers will discuss genomic technologies that include multi-omic analyses at a single-cell level, genome structure and function, and large-scale analysis of DNA-protein interactions. 

Each session will be followed by a roundtable discussion and participant Q&A.
