Tue 12th December 2017
Join us for this Knowledge Exchange by Dr Winston Timp.
Dr Winston Timp is an assistant professor in Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. After receiving his doctorate in Electrical Engineering from MIT, he trained as a postdoc at Johns Hopkins in the labs of Andrew Feinberg and Andre Levchenko, studying the epigenetics of cancer.
His lab's focus is in the development and application of sequencing technologies to gain a deeper understanding of biology and a more accurate set of clinical tools for human disease. Their work integrates biophysics, molecular biology and computational biology to create new tools for exploring the epigenome and genome.
In this presentation you will hear about Winston's lab work about applying nanopore sequencing to their work. It will cover:
- Targeted capture optimisation
- How it was used to explore structural variations
- SNV analysis and phasing when using Nanopolish
- Development of methylation detection methods and their applications
Time: 3pm GMT
Other timings: 4pm CET, 10am EST, 7am PST
*If you are unable to join at the time, a recording will be available for on-demand viewing.
