About the Webinar
The most cutting-edge and powerful NGS platforms on the market are revolutionizing the way scientists do genomics. The HiSeq X Series makes the $1000 genome a reality – this platform offers the most cost-effective approach for large genome sequencing, allowing researchers to expand their population genetic studies. The PacBio Sequel is the industry-leading platform for long read lengths, allowing researchers to completely close smaller bacterial genomes and greatly aid in larger genome assemblies and structural variant discovery. The 10X Genomics Chromium is a revolutionary platform that allows for cost-effective, true single-cell analysis of up to ~50K cells. This platform’s applications include gene expression analysis from mixed samples, variant phasing, and haplotyping. This presentation will focus on how the aforementioned platforms work, their detailed applications, and some new platforms on the horizon.
