Lunch and Learn with Illumina

November 8 @ 11:00 AM - 12:45 PM

Join ICBR NextGen DNA Sequencing and Illumina for a special lunch and learn on November 8th (11:00pm-12:45pm) in CGRC 184.

Speaker:  Matt Angel, SE Sequencing Specialist – Illumina Inc.

 11:00-11:45am – Learn about the latest methods for single‐ cell genome and transcriptome analysis in the first part of the seminar: Analysis of Single-Cell Gene Expression Using Next-Generation Sequencing

  •  Review the theory behind Single-cell sequencing and key technical elements
  •  Explore how Illumina sequencing solutions help researchers discover more
  •  Walk through the Illumina library prep, sequencing, and data analysis workflow

 12:00pm – 12:45pm – Learn about new library preps recently launched by Illumina in the last part of our seminar: TruSeq® Genotype Ne Kit and Nextera™ DNA Flex – NEW Library Preparations from Illumina for Non-Human and Human NGS Sequencing 

 TruSeq® Genotype Ne Kit: 

  • Flexible, cost-effective solution for targeted genotyping by sequencing (GBS) for parentage, purity studies, and breeding decisions for any plant and nonhuman animal species.  
  • Designed and optimized to work with up to 5000 markers and is easily scalable from hundreds to tens of thousands of samples.
  • Customizable – achieve consistent genotyping performance from content designed by Illumina Concierge services
  • Integrated workflow – Access streamlined library prep, reliable sequencing, and user-friendly data analysis

Nextera™ DNA Flex: 

  • our newest, fastest, most flexible library prep in Illumina’s portfolio.
  • Suitable for most all DNA whole genome applications and multiple sample types including, but not limited to, blood, Saliva, dried blood spots, bacterial colonies. 
  • Dual index strategies enable a robust assay across all Illumina Sequencing platforms.
  • Integrated workflow – Access streamlined library prep, reliable sequencing, and user-friendly data analysis

 Lunch provided with RSVP.
