Sept. 10-11, 2013 – Next Generation Sequencing Technology and Sample Preparation Workshop

Next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies allow laboratories to do genome-wide research that was previously only possible at large genome centers. Participants will learn key concepts and applications of major sequencing technologies (Illumina, 454, SOLiD, Ion Torrent & PacBio) including technology basics, technology-specific error modes, experiment design considerations, common data analysis workflows (like RNA-Seq, genome assembly, ChIP-Seq, SNP- and other variant discovery, etc.) and associated IT concerns.
