NEXT GENERATION DNA SEQUENCING WORKSHOP
Wednesday, October 18, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
On Wednesday, October 18, from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm, The University of Tennessee Genomics Core will host a workshop on Next Generation DNA sequencing. This workshop will target researchers new to the field of genomics, focusing on molecular dietary studies with DNA metabarcoding, although researchers interested in other Next Gen topics could benefit as well. Participants will be guided through a typical amplicon workflow on an Illumina MiSeq platform via a combination of interactive lectures and hands-on experiences. If time allows, they will also be instructed on some basic bioinformatics analysis options. Participants will meet in the lobby of the Holiday Inn at 8:30 and transportation to the Genomics Core will be provided. Transportation back to the hotel may not be available, but the facility is an easy 15-minute walk from the hotel. Please let us know if you will require assistance getting back to the hotel. Lunch is included.
