FREE WORKSHOP ON NGS IN PLANT RESEARCHFREE WORKSHOP ON NGS IN PLANT RESEARCH

18th Sep 2012

GARNet and The Genetics Society are hosting a free workshop on the many and varied applications of next generation sequencing (NGS) at the University of Liverpool on 26 November. 

The aim of the workshop is to inform the Arabidopsis and wider plant community of the extensive and varied uses of NGS in plant research. We hope the workshop will provide an introduction to those researchers to whom NGS remains a black box and inspiration to those hoping to utilise it further in their work.

After an introductory session, the morning presentations will be on re-sequencing, including its use for genome-wide association studies of Arabidopsis genomes, identifying novel mutations, and fine-mapping of quantitative trait loci. The first afternoon sessions will be themed around de-novo and comparative genomics. The final four presentations will be on novel uses of next generation sequencing, ranging from RNA sequencing to mapping chromatin structure.
