Sat 12th January - Wed 16th January 2019
The Plant and Animal Genome XXVII Conference (PAG) will be January 12-16 2019. It is designed to provide a forum on recent developments and future plans for plant and animal genome projects. Consisting of technical presentations, poster sessions, exhibits and workshops, the conference is an excellent opportunity to exchange ideas and applications on this internationally important project.
Oxford Nanopore Technologies will be hosting an industry workshop at PAGXXVII on new discoveries using nanopore sequencing: from large genomes to microbial communities
Location: Town and Country, Royal Palm Salon 1-2
Date: Tuesday, Jan 15 1:30 PM
Duration: 2 hours 10 minutes
Nanopore sequencing generates by far the longest reads of any sequencing technology. Recently the output of nanopore sequencers has increased dramatically, such that it is now possible to generate chromosome scale assemblies of large complex genomes quickly and at low cost. The technology also makes it possible to rapidly and accurately resolve complex microbial communities. The system is portable, sequences native DNA capturing base modifications, and can be used to directly sequence RNA.
In this session we will share the latest technology developments and our invited speakers will present their high impact research using nanopore sequencing to assemble plant genomes, explore structural variation, and interrogate the microbiome.
