Virtual PacBio Day at CGR 11th May 2021
The event is an excellent opportunity for learning more about the platforms available at the CGR for your research. Our co-director Prof Steve Paterson will provide an overview of the CGR services and collaborations. He will launch a competition for sequencing a de novo genome in partnership with the Nerc Environmental Omics facility (NEOF) and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute’s Darwin Tree of Life (DToL) project.
We have two great speakers who will deliver a talk on how they used long reads to accelerate their research. Dr Chris Quince will provide an overview of his latest research in the Microbiome. At the same time, our co-director Prof Alistair Darby will give an insight into Arthropod Genomics for Pest and Disease Control.
Finally, the Q&A section will allow you to interact with:
Kirren Kaur (PacBio Field Applications Specialist)
Bas Tolhuis (PacBio Field Applications Scientist, Bioinformatics) from PacBio
Dr Anita Lucaci (CGR Sequence Production Manager)
Dr Xuan Liu (CGR Informatics Team)
They will join the panel to answer any questions you may have on applications or collaborating with CGR.
The event is a unique opportunity for finding more on how to use long reads and collaborate with the Centre for Genomics.
