Rapid SV Detection and De Novo Assembly in Complex Genomes Using Extremely Long Single Molecule Level Imaging

Thursday, November 14, 2013
1011 a.m.

Location:

Genomics Building , Room 1102A
Parking Information

Description:

Seminar presents a rapid genome wide analysis method based on a new
NanoChannel Array technology (Irys) that dynamically streams and linearizes
extremely long DNA molecules for direct image analysis at tens of gigabases per
run. This high-throughput platform automates the imaging of genomic DNA
hundreds to thousands of kilobases in length at the single molecule level, for
unambiguous assembly of complex genomes. High-resolution genome maps
assembled de novo via unique sequence motif labeling, preserving long-range
structural variation information that is intractable by current short read NGS
platforms.

Coffee served prior to seminar. Q&A to follow.
