Discover New Insights into Human Genetic Variation at ESHG in Barcelona

Wednesday, May 18, 2016

The PacBio team is looking forward to joining 3,000 other scientists in Barcelona May 21-24 for the European Human Genetics Conference, better known as ESHG.  Organized by the European Society of Human Genetics, this is the 49th year of a high-quality meeting where the latest developments in human and medical genetics are discussed.

This year, we’ll be showcasing our new Sequel System at booth #260 in the exhibit hall. Come visit us and learn more about it! With higher throughput than our previous instrument, we think the Sequel System will be a great fit for the genomics community on projects such as multiplex targeted sequencing and RNA isoform sequencing.

To learn how scientists are already using PacBio sequencing to address unanswered questions in genomics, don’t miss the SMRT Sequencing workshop hosted by Roche Sequencing. The luncheon event will be held on Monday, May 23, from 11:15 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. in rooms 120 and 121. Christine Beck from Baylor College of Medicine will discuss the use of long fragment capture and sequencing techniques to reveal structural variation at clinically relevant loci. Robert Sebra from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai will discuss how his lab uses long-read sequencing to gain a more comprehensive view of complex regions of the genome, including pharmalogically important sites, oncogenes, and structural variants linked to genetic disease.

There will also be ESHG talks and posters featuring SMRT Sequencing data in a wide range of applications, including whole genome assembly and haplotyping, immunology, repeat expansion disorders, and non-coding RNAs. Please join us at the following presentations:
