Webinar: Improving and Optimizing Sequencing Workflows

Date: Tuesday, July 20, 2021

Time: 08:00 am USA Pacific Time (PT); 11:00 am USA Eastern Time (ET)

SpeakersYonatan Katzenelenbogen, Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel; Thomas Krausgruber, PhD, Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (CeMM); and Mandovi Chatterjee, PhD, Harvard Medical School

Overview

Genome, epigenome, transcriptome and metagenome sequencing are all widely used for research and clinical applications. There are 4 critical steps to any sequencing experiment: sample preparation, library design, sequencing and data analysis. The choices made for accomplishing these steps are often driven by the sample and the biological question to be addressed.

Many of those decisions are also based on the type of sequencing done (tissue or single cell; DNA or RNA sequencing; short-read or long-read; whole genome, whole exome, or targeted). The processing, annotation and visualization tools used for data analysis ultimately determine the knowledge that is gleaned from any sequencing experiment.

In this webinar, you will learn

  • How to decide which sequencing technique to use
  • How to design and run sequencing experiments
  • What are some of the common challenges encountered, from sample prep to data analysis
  • How to troubleshoot and overcome some of those challenges
  • Case studies describing how sequencing can be done efficiently to save time and cost

This unique webinar will feature short scientific presentations followed by a live Q&A session, moderated by a sequencing expert. The forum offers an opportunity for open discussion and sharing of best practices and technical know-how.
