Courses and Workshops

The DNA Technologies and Expression Analysis Cores are committed to providing instruction in and information about the latest techniques used here by the Cores and the scientific community at large. We have run chromatin immunoprecipitation workshops and lately have also been organizing workshops in library preparation for Illumina sequencing.

New workshops are announced through the dnatech_news mailing list.  Please subscribe to our newsletter.

  • RNA-Seq Workshop – Library Preparation and Introduction to Data Analysis – February 8th to 10th 2017

    October 27, 2016
    February 8th, 9 a.m. – February  10th,  5 p.m. RNA-seq has revolutionized the way we address complex biological questions, allowing for differential gene expression, differential transcript analysis, as well as transcriptome assemblies. As sequencing output rapidly increases and sample numbers increase, library preparation becomes one of the major bottlenecks. This workshop provides comprehensive hands-on training in the preparation of ...

  • Free RNAseq workshop, January 20th 2016

    January 17, 2016
    The Bioinformatics core is hosting a free two hour RNA-seq hour work shop on Januray 20th. Please see:  http://bioinformatics.ucdavis.edu/rnaseq-workshopjan2016/
  • First PacBio Workshop – generates long-insert libraries, assembles genomes

    April 23, 2015
    The first PacBio Library Prep and SMRT-portal workshop held in April generated plenty of SMRT sequencing libraries with inserts of up to 20 kb. The users learnt about the technical background of PacBio sequencing, common applications, the advantages of long read sequencing, and how to use the  PacBio data analysis software. The first two days a lot of ...
  • PacBio Library Prep workshop and PacBio SMART-Portal bootcamp courses — April 2015

    January 22, 2015
    UC Davis Genome Center Workshop on PacBio Sequencing and Data Analysis (Wet lab and Bioinformatics) PacBio sequencing is the method of choice for de novo assembly of high quality genome sequences (see these AGBT presentations), the sequencing of long amplicons and complex repetitive regions, the analysis of gene isoforms, and structural variant detection. With support from ...
  • Oct 20-22, 2014 – Next Gen Sequencing Technology and Sequencing Library Prep Workshop: RNA-seq

    October 9, 2014
    Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) has revolutionized the way that we address complex biological questions. As sequencing output rapidly increases and experimental scales get bigger, library preparation becomes one of the major bottlenecks for NGS. This course provides a comprehensive hands-on training on how to prepare high quality libraries for Illumina HiSeq2500 and MiSeq sequencing platforms. ...

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

    June 6, 2013
    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, ...
