Welcome to NanoSeq-2017

Over the last decade, next-generation sequencing technologies have opened a new era for genomic studies. These technologies are associated with increasing sequencing power but are also limited by short length of sequenced DNA fragments. This limitation has recently been considerably surpassed by technologies that allow sequencing single DNA molecules. This workshop is dedicated to studies using the MinION sequencer (Oxford Nanopore Technologies), a 3rd generation nanopore sequencer that can sequence DNA fragments up to hundreds of kb, as well as full length RNA molecules. This opens the road for unprecedented possibilities in genomics, metagenomics and epigenomics (de novo genome sequencing, genome variant sequencing, identification of messenger RNA isoforms, identification of DNA modifications, etc.). During NanoSeq-2017, internationally renown experts will present their work and share their expertise in these different fields integrating the possibilities provided by MinION sequencing.

The workshop is aimed at scientists working with genomics (DNA and RNA sequencing), metagenomics and epigenomics, including PhD students, engineers, young and senior scientists. 

Registration is free but mandatory and is limited to 150 participants, on a first-come basis (see registration form on this website).

You can download the poster of this workshop as well as the program.
