ASHG 2014: A New Look at the Human Genome with Long-Read Sequencing

Friday, October 10, 2014

Scientists around the world are getting ready for the annual meeting of the American Society of Human Genetics taking place October 18-22 at the San Diego Convention Center. We’re looking forward to a number of excellent presentations and posters, and are delighted to see that many of them will focus on applying Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT®) Sequencing to human studies.

If you’ll be among those attending ASHG, be sure to attend our workshop, A New Look at the Human Genome – Novel Insights with Long-Read PacBio Sequencing, taking place 12:30 – 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 21. Register in advance to reserve your seat or to receive the recording following the event. Our CSO, Jonas Korlach, will host the workshop, which includes:

* Increased Complexity of the Human Genome Revealed by Single-Molecule Sequencing
Evan Eichler, University of Washington 

* Defining a Personal, Allele-Specific, and Single-Molecule Long-Read Transcriptome
Hagen Tilgner, Stanford University

* Long-Read Multiplexed Amplicon Sequencing: Applications for Epigenetics and Pharmacogenetics
Stuart Scott, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai

In addition, here are some of the program presentations and posters we’re excited to see at the event:
