GGBC and PacBio Workshop, Friday March 23, 2018 : SMRT Sequencing for Smart Genomics

GGBC and PacBio Workshop: SMRT Sequencing for Smart Genomics

Date: March 23rd, 2018

Location: UGA Miller Plant Sciences Building, Room 2401

Speakers: Dr. Magdy Alabady, Dr. Andy Larrea, Dr. Casey Bergman, Dr. Steve Turner

Sponsored by the Georgia Genomics and Bioinformatics Core and Lexogen

 

The Georgia Genomics and Bioinformatics Core and PacBio are excited to announce an afternoon workshop on Friday, March 23 from 1pm-5pm.
Please mark the date and plan on joining us to learn how PacBio sequencing can be leveraged to benefit your research program.

PacBio representatives and UGA faculty will present short, ca. 20 min. talks on handling datasets generated for genome and transcriptome assembly, base modification and structural variation analyses. We would also like to include a few Lightning Talks to stimulate discussion: anyone at UGA working with PacBio data who is willing to give a short 3-5 min. talk about their work please contact Walt Lorenz (wlorenz@uga.edu) for more information.

We will wrap up with an informal round table discussion where technical and bioinformatics questions will be answered by our panel as we enjoy a selection of “refreshments.”

All registered attendees will have a chance to win free PacBio sequencing at the GGBC.

The attached flyer gives the general outline of speakers.  A second flyer with a registration link and further details regarding the sequencing giveaway will be forthcoming soon.
