Webinar: Anthony Nolan’s Neema Mayor Reports on HLA Typing with Long Reads

Following the recent paper about HLA typing from scientists at Anthony Nolan Research Institute, we thought readers might enjoy this webinar from Neema Mayor, a scientist at the institute and lead author on the paper. The video offers a great foundation on HLA typing for beginners as well as more detailed information about typing technologies for advanced users. (Learn more about the institute's plans for HLA typing in this GenomeWeb article.) Named for Anthony Nolan, a young boy whose need for a bone marrow transplant spurred his mother to start the world’s first registry of potential donors, the institute focuses…

AGBT 2015: PacBio Workshop Review & Recording

Our AGBT workshop attracted more than 500 attendees thanks to the high-profile speakers who shared their perspectives on human genomic research. Because of the exclusivity of AGBT, we decided to live-stream our workshop to reach the broader scientific community. Thanks to the the hundreds of people who tuned in to our live webcast from afar! Here are some highlights from the presentations and the recording of the workshop is at the bottom of this post. Our CEO, Mike Hunkapiller, started the session with a reflection on the 15-year anniversary of the announcements of the first human genomes, noting these efforts…
