    PacBio Workshop on Genome Sequence Assembly and Analysis

    Lausanne, 20 March 2014

    Overview

    Recent improvements in the Pacific Biosciences RSII technology as well as PacBio data analysis methods have greatly increased the utility of this sequencing platform for both small and large genome sequencing. 

    To highlight these improvements and applications, and to give potential users an opportunity to discuss with current users how this technology can be incorporated into their sequencing projects, a PacBio Workshop on Genome Sequence Assembly and Analysis will be held in Lausanne.

    Application

    Registration is not necessary.  Attendance is open to all.
