Microbial Sequencing 101: From bench-top to FASTA file

Are you itching to know what secrets lay in the nucleic acid of your favourite microbe? Are you curious in learning how to go from an environmental/clinical sample to revealing its microbial composition? On Friday July 13th from 12PM to 1PM in MDCL 3022, the HMBJC is hosting a tutorial lead by Christine King of the Farncombe Metagenomics Facility to explain the steps involved in sequencing microbial DNA. All are welcome to attend this methods tutorial which will cover the basics, from sequencing technology and terminology, to the steps involved in sample preparation for sequencing of whole bacterial genomes and mixed microbial communities.

Please join us and ready your questions for an interactive discussion to gain the knowledge to conduct your own sequencing project and/or the confidence to assess the validity of others’.

Pizza will be served! Hope to see you all there!
