Research Cores Seminar Series: Decoding the Future: Advances in Long Read Sequencing

As genomics propels us into an era of personalized medicine and intricate studies of biodiversity, the demand for comprehensive and accurate sequencing tools has never been greater. Traditional short read methods have provided a foundational understanding of the genomic landscape, but the rise of long read sequencing offers a richer, more complete picture of the DNA molecules in their native state.

This panel discussion will delve deep into the transformative potential of long read sequencing technologies. Highlights include:

  • Foundations of long read sequencing
  • Technological advancements
  • Applications in research and medicine
  • Data analysis and integration
  • Future perspectives
