About this event
The sequencing landscape is changing rapidly with new technologies, analysis approaches and players hitting the market. Recent assumptions around the choice of sequencing provider and equipment are no longer accurate. How do you now make sense of the dynamic sequencing ecosystem?
You’re probably wondering which sequencing technology will best answer your research question. You may also want to learn more about when to use short-reads and when to opt for long-reads. Or you may be planning your 2023 projects and wondering where you should start.
Our Advances in Genomic Sequencing ONLINE webinar series will help you with these questions and others by:
- Sharing case studies on dissecting the most complex diseases, from cancer to neurodegenerative disorders using long and short reads
- Uncovering the benefits of using a combination of long and short-read sequencing technologies
- Providing you with the latest insights into which patents are expiring and which new players are entering the scene
** Please note, by registering for webinar one in the series you will automatically receive access to the subsequent webinar. **
Webinar 1: Exploring long- and short-read sequencing
Wednesday 30 November 3 pm GMT/4 pm CET/10 am EST
Despite the benefits of long-read sequencing, why are some researchers still turning to short-reads? When is long-read sequencing best and how long is long enough? How can we best leverage both technologies to better understand the human genome?
