Dear IIGB and UCR Community,

Please join us for this special event on Weds Dec 10 featuring informational seminars about Illumina’s new Synthetic Long Read DNA Sequencing Technology. Please register at the link provided.

The event is open to other SoCal universities. However, exclusive to UCR, we will be giving away a free SLR preparation kit valued at more than $3000 to one lucky lab (must be present to win)!

Hope to see you there!

All the best from your IIGB central Facilites

Introduction to Synthetic Long-Reads Lunch & Learn Seminar

You are invited to hear firsthand reports of how scientists are using Illumina long-read technology to advance their research during a special lunch presentation. Longer sequence reads can facilitate alignment and improve the accuracy of genome assembly by providing insight into traditionally challenging regions, such as stretches of repetitive elements. Learn about an innovative technology for generating long reads combining a new library prep method and genome analysis tools from Moleculo, a part of Illumina since 2012.
