Streamlined chromosome-scale phasing with HiFi sequencing

June 20, 2023

Tuesday, June 20, 2023
10.00 AM EDT | 3.00 PM BST | 4.00 PM CEST

In human, non-human, and cancer genomic research, there is a pressing need for streamlined, efficient computational approaches that can reconstruct high-quality, chromosome-scale phased sequences at scale. In this webinar, Shilpa Garg, PhD discusses innovative methods for efficient and accurate haplotype-resolved genome assembly that enable new, unbiased studies of haplotype variation.



Shining a light on dark genes in population sequencing

Americas broadcast: Tuesday, June 20 | 9:00 am PDT
Europe broadcast: Thursday, June 22 | 3:00 pm BST
Asia-Pacific broadcast: Thursday, June 22 | 11:00 am SGT

Large, diverse datasets are critical to ensuring that the promise of genomics can be realized by more people in more places around the world than ever before. Whether research is focused on discovering novel variants, determining frequencies, or empowering precision health for the greater good, having the most comprehensive and accurate sequencing technology is vitally important. HiFi long-read sequencing allows scientists to study populations in incredible detail to drive discovery and democratize findings for maximum global impact—far into the future.

Join us for this exciting digital event where Fritz Sedlazeck, PhD from Baylor College of Medicine and Kiran Garimella, PhD from the Broad Institute and All of Us program will explain how HiFi long-read sequencing is energizing the potential of population genomics by enabling scientists to:

  • Catalogue all genetic variation, reflecting a population’s true diversity.
  • Maximize discovery potential to enable the most accurate insights possible.

Genome Diversity: Insights from long-read sequencing

July 13, 2023 - July 14, 2023

Building on Bioplatforms Australia initiatives (e.g. OMG, AusARG, TSI, NCIG) and parallel research, the Centre for Biodiversity Analysis and the National Centre for Indigenous Genomics will host a symposium on Genome Diversity: Insights from long read-sequencing.

The meeting plans to showcase new advances in 3rd-generation genomics (PacBio and Nanopore) in genome assembly, haplotypes, pan-genomes, and structural variation. It will cover biological and technological insights and diversity among non-model populations of plants, animals, and humans. Multiple sessions will span topics across organisms and tools including genome repeats, methylation and other modifications that sit on top of the genome diversity. The program will link new insights from long read assemblies with biological function, phenotypic and adaptive diversity and highlight signatures of natural selection.
