Hands on course in Oxford Nanopore DNA sequencing and data analysis



Due to the recent and marked increase in COVID-19 cases in Denmark, the course originally scheduled for 23-25 November has been postponed. Pending an improvement in the COVID-19 situation the course will be rescheduled for late Q1 2021 or early Q2 2021.

Dates to be announced
When the ongoing COVID-19 situation permits, DNASense will again host a 3-days hands-on course in Oxford Nanopore DNA Sequencing (check out our course flyer). By virtue of its low-cost, portability and scalability, the Oxford Nanopore Long-Read Sequencing Technology provides a novel and revolutionary way of analyzing DNA or RNA in virtually any setting and close-to real-time. It therefore offers an endless range of applications for e.g. the clinical setting, environmental samples, research and biologics production. DNASense has been using the technology since its launch and we want to provide you with a head start in Nanopore sequencing and data analysis.

Course content
The aim of the course is to equip you with a basic theoretical and practical understanding of Nanopore Sequencing. You will gain hands-on experience with library preparation and the operations needed to successfully begin your own sequencing experiments. Following sequencing, we will process (basecall, demultiplex and remove adaptors), evaluate and filter data. As a case-example and using a state-of-the-art cloud-computing approach, we will attempt to assemble a bacterial metagenome and apply it for further data analysis. Equally important, this course offers a chance to network with other DNA/RNA sequencing enthusiasts, troubleshoot and discuss your specific project requirements.

Venue: Aarhus, Denmark
Price: 2.000 EUR / 15.000 DKK
Seats available: 20
