At PAG, Workshops on Complete Genomes and SMRT Informatics

Friday, January 13, 2017

Looks like the sun will be shining on the annual Plant and Animal Genome (PAG) conference next week (despite the recent stormy weather in CA).  We’re excited to be a part of the event which is always a great forum for cutting-edge scientific projects, new ways to apply technology, and networking with leaders in the plant and animal realm.

The 25th annual PAG conference will take place January 14-18 in San Diego and SMRT Sequencing will be featured in a variety of activities throughout the event. Visit us at booth #418 to learn more about SMRT Sequencing, the Sequel System, and our latest chemistry release. Attendees can also sign up for daily ‘expert hours’ featuring educational presentations on the Iso-Seq method, sample preparation, and data analysis.

As usual, we’ll be hosting a workshop at the meeting. “SMRT Sequencing for Complete Genomes” will run from 12:50 pm to 3:00 pm on Monday, January 16th in the conference hotel’s San Diego Ballroom. Speakers include Rebecca Johnson from the Australian Museum Research Institute, Erich Jarvis and Ben Matthews from Rockefeller University, the University of Arizona’s Rod Wing, Richard Kuo from the Roslin Institute and our own Jonas Korlach. Be sure to reserve your seat ahead of time or sign up to get the workshop recording if you can’t attend.

In addition, PAG attendees and any other scientists are welcome to join our SMRT Informatics Developers Conference on Wednesday, January 18th, from 12:00 pm to 4:30 pm (reserve your seat). It will also take place in the Town and Country Hotel, in the Sheffield/Hampton Ballroom. This collaborative event will aim to develop and improve data analysis tools for SMRT Sequencing data, with a focus on de novo genome assembly and Iso-Seq full-length transcript sequencing. Past events have been huge hits and have facilitated great advances in the analysis community. Speakers include:

  • Sergey Koren, National Institutes of Health
  • Jason Chin, PacBio
  • Ben Rosen, United States Department of Agriculture
  • Shaun Jackman, University of British Columbia
  • Roberto Lleras, PacBio
  • Kin Fai Au, University of Iowa
  • Richard Kuo, Roslin Institute, University of Edinburgh
  • Rachael Workman, Johns Hopkins University
  • Richard Hall, PacBio

Lastly, we’re pleased to announce our fourth annual Plant and Animal SMRT Grant Program, which encourages scientists to tell us about their ‘most interesting genome in the world’ for a chance to win sequencing on the Sequel System.  Entries are due by Jan. 31.

We hope to see you in San Diego!
