Register Now: Isoform Sequencing Webinars Offer Tips on Method and Analysis

If full-length transcript information would be useful for your research, please join us for two upcoming webinars. Our scientists will offer tips for how to optimize the Iso-Seq™ method with the PacBio® System to meet your research goals.

Our first webinar, Iso-Seq™ Method: Sample Prep and Experimental Design for Full-Length cDNA Sequencing,” will be presented by Tyson Clark, PacBio’s senior manager for next-generation applications and technologies. The talk will cover recent Iso-Seq template preparation protocol updates for creating full-length cDNAs, why full-length transcript sequence matters, and experimental design considerations. Sign up now at your preferred time: the webinar will take place on Wednesday, February 11, at 8:00 am PST or at 5:00 pm PST.

The second webinar, “Iso-Seq™ Analysis & Beyond: Advanced Bioinformatics for Transcriptome Sequencing Using Long Reads,” will be hosted by Elizabeth Tseng, a staff scientist at PacBio. The presentation will demonstrate how to run the Iso-Seq bioinformatics software pipeline that is part of our SMRT® Analysis software suite (including both the web portal interface and the command line version), as well as additional analyses and troubleshooting. Participants will learn to visualize isoforms, compare against reference transcript annotations, look for fusion gene candidates, and more. RSVP now for your preferred time: the webinar will take place on Thursday, February 12, at 8:00 am PST or at 5:00 pm PST.

Can’t make it? We’ll be recording the webinars and making them available at a later date.
