Getting to know Oxford Nanopore Long-read sequencing and its applications
This one-day free-of-charge meeting aims at bringing together scientists from various disciplines that have not worked with Nanopore Sequencing applications, and expert Nanopore users from fields such as medical diagnostics, marine biology and Microbiology.
With hands-on training, technical experts at your disposal, and presentation of projects from a broad range of scientific areas we wish to to make everyone a Nanopore Sequencing expert, and promote collaboration on your scientific projects.
This meeting will furthermore lead to the foundation of The Nordic Nanopore-Seq Network, an inclusive union of expert users and novelists that aims to promote applications of this future technology within the Nordic countries.
We look forward to meet you in September!
