Hands on course in Oxford Nanopore DNA Sequencing and data analysis using cloud computing
We are pleased to announce that DNASense will 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 the clinical setting, the municipal or private sectors as well as academia. We have been using the technology since the very beginning and want to provide you with a head start in nanopore sequencing and data analysis.
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 librarypreparation and the operations needed to successfully begin your own sequencing experiment. 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 genome. Equally important, this course offers a chance to network, troubleshoot and discuss your project and your needs.
