Workshop on Modern Approaches to High Throughput Sequencing

Scope/Topic

May 5, 2013 - May 8, 2013

The Jackson Laboratory, Bar Harbor ME

Course is full, we are no longer taking applications.

The high-throughput sequencing (HTS) workshop will provide attendees with both theoretical and practical training in HTS.  Lectures on HTS technologies and associated approaches to data analysis  will be interwoven with hands-on laboratory training on DNA-seq library preparation, sequencing on the Illumina MiSeq and data analysis.  Attendees will walk away with HTS data that they have generated and access to a cloud-based analysis pipeline in which they can put  to use the knowledge they have attained.
