The GGBC is sponsoring a PacBio Mini-Symposium on Thursday, Sept. 9th at 1pm. Register to attend in-person or virtually. A UGA SMRT Grant competition will be held as part of this event with the top submission receiving free sequencing of up to 4 SMRT cells. The top 20 submissions will receive 20% off of a PacBio sequencing project. Lunch and beverages will be available for in-person attendees.
GGBC Seminar : COVID19/SARS-CoV-2 Webinar – Wednesday, August 4th, 2021 at 12:00 PM
The GGBC invites you to join us Wednesday, August 4th for a webinar on sequencing and bioinformatics approaches used to analyze SARS-CoV-2 data.
Speakers from Illumina, IDbyDNA and UGA will be presenting.
This promises to be an interesting and informative series of talks for those interested in the latest short read sequencing approaches used for the analysis and epidemiological surveillance of SARs-CoV-2 variants.
Schedule of talks:
12:00pm – 12:40pm
