Webinar: More Comprehensive and Accurate Variant Detection with Highly Accurate Long Reads

We are really pleased to announce the recent implementation of PacBio accurate long read sequencing technology within OGC.

The new Sequel IIe platform was installed at WHG by the end of 2020. In order to introduce the capabilities of this new sequencing instrument you are invited to a first webinar on Januaray 20th at 3pm GMT.

Virtual PacBio Day

This event provides you with the opportunity to hear from your peers about their latest discoveries and how highly accurate long-read sequencing (HiFi sequencing) can help answer your toughest biological questions.

The Sequel IIe System, available at the Oxford Genomics Centre, delivers a comprehensive view of genomes, transcriptomes and epigenomes.

This 2-hour event includes:

An introduction to the Sequel IIe System at the Oxford Genomics Centre

Presentations from researchers using HiFi sequencing

Live Q&A to interact with speakers

A dedicated session to get your questions about HiFi sequencing answered

On-demand tutorials for those new to PacBio

The opportunity to connect with your colleagues in the Community
