Genoscope have organized a one-day workshop dedicated to transcriptome studies using the MinION. This sequencer can generate fragments up to hundreds of kilobases, and has the ability to perform full-length sequencing of RNA strands directly, or of cDNA. It opens up new perspectives to decipher the structure of genes and estimate their expression both at the gene and isoform level. It also raises a number of bioinformatics challenges to analyse the data. The goal of this meeting is to share recent experiences and results on these topics.
This workshop is organized by members of the ASTER ANR Project, and funded by France Génomique and Oxford Nanopore Technologies.
