Workshop on long read sequencing

14th and 15th of August a workshop focused on analyzing long read took place in Radix building at the Wageningen University & Research campus.

The workshop was a joint effort of Genetwister Technologies B.V. and Wageningen University. 14 participants among which were researchers from Genetwister and the shareholders of Genetwister, students and PhD students with different backgrounds learned about benefits and practical aspects of the application of Pacific Biosicences and Oxford Nanopore Technology reads. Exercises included performing de novo assembly, read mapping and comparing the results from both technologies.

The workshop was not only a place to acquire new skills and try out the technology before putting it to work in projects, but it turned out to be a great opportunity to share ideas, raise questions and discuss new possibilities.

The course materials are available upon request. Please contact us if you are interested.
