Core webinar: Comprehensive analysis of human variants and cancer genomes with multi-omic nanopore sequencing

Widespread genomic aberrations are a hallmark of many cancer types. Despite their contribution to oncogenesis, the identification of complex driver events such as structural variants (SVs) in cancer remains challenging.

During this webinar Mikhail Kolmogorov, (Tenure-Track Stadtman Investigator, National Cancer Institute) presented how he developed an efficient and scalable workflow that generates state-of-the art small variant calls, structural variant calls and de novo assemblies from a single PromethION Flow Cell. Then, Etienne Raimondeau (Technical Product Manager, Oxford Nanopore Technologies) shared a comprehensive overview of simple and efficient human whole-genome sequencing.
