Workshop in Bioinformatics
Next workshop in Bioinformatics will focus on Nanopore sequencing and the opportunities it provides for scientists. Nanopore offers of long-range sequencing of DNA and RNA, up to 50kb, that can yield more information than the traditional short-range sequencing, and it also includes methylation modifications.
During the workshop three scientist who are currently using Nanopore technology will give presentations of their work. This will be followed by questions and discussion session where we will explore the opportunities available for other scientists.
PromethION Oxford Nanopore instrument are accessible at the BMC.
More details will be announced later.
