SMRT Sequencing for Plant and Animal Genomes: Learn More at PAG 2014

Wednesday, January 8, 2014

Many recent studies have demonstrated the use of Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT®) Sequencing for larger genomes, from complete reference genomes to de novo discovery of transcript isoforms. These advances include understanding genome complexity and variation and enabling improved leverage of haplotype information for biotechnology. Some of these efforts will be presented at the workshop we’re hosting at this year’s International Plant & Animal Genome (PAG) conference in San Diego. Sign up now to reserve your seat or receive the recording after the event. 

Workshop details:

A SMRT® Sequencing Approach to Reference Genomes, Annotation, and Haplotyping
Tuesday, January 15
1:30 – 3:30 p.m.
San Diego Room, Town & Country Hotel

Presentations:

* Joe Ecker, Professor, Salk International Council Chair in Genetics, HHMI/Gordon and Betty Moore Investigator, The Salk Institute for Biological Studies
Resolving the Complexity of Genomic and Epigenomic Variations in Arabidopsis

* Sean Gordon, Research Molecular Biologist, USDA-ARS
A Fungal Transcriptome Uses Complex and Double-Edged Isoforms to Split Wood 

* Shane Brubaker, Director of Bioinformatics, Solazyme, Inc.
Assembly, Haplotyping, and Annotation of a High GC Algal Genome

* Allen Van Deynze, Director of Research, UC Davis, Seed Biotechnology Center
A De Novo Draft Assembly of Spinach Using Pacific Biosciences’ Technology

We’ll also be hosting a new grant competition for PAG attendees, co-sponsored by Sage Science. Simply write a short description of why the genome you want to sequence is the “Most Interesting Genome in the World” and you could win free library construction with BluePippin™ automated DNA size selection and up to three sequencing runs on the new PacBio® RS II sequencing system. Entries must be submitted by January 31st at www.pacb.com/smrtgrant. Stop by our booth at PAG (#231) to find out more.

See you in sunny San Diego!
