Seminar on second-generation sequencing methods

A seminar on second-generation sequencing methods, organized by Genomed company and Independent Genomics Laboratory of the National Research Institute of Animal Production will take place on 29th November 2011 at 9:30 a.m. in the Conference Room of the National Research Institute of Animal Production.

The meeting entitled: “Benefits from using second-generation genome sequencing in research – application of 454 Titanium technology in molecular biology” will be devoted to the following issues:

    • structural genomics
    • metagenomics
    • sequencing of cDNA libraries
    • sequencing of amplicons
    • localization of transgenes in the genome
    • detecting unknown and unidentified viral pathogens

      The aim of the seminar is to broaden knowledge on new technologies and results analysis methods used to sequence new generations in a number of applications such as: de novo sequencing of whole genomes, sequencing of exons of annotated genes, resequencing of genomes, study of transcriptomes after translation of information from RNA to DNA, determination of species composition of organisms in the environment, and study of interactions between organisms and their pathogens.
