Seminar description:

Got samples? We’ve got the sequencing! NGI ( is one of the largest platforms at SciLifeLab and provides both established and cutting-edge genomics technologies to diverse user groups across Sweden and internationally. There’s a wide range of applications as NGI is equipped with both short- and long read technologies, as well as SNP genotyping- and DNA methylation arrays. The platform assists users in project design, data generation, analysis and management of data in order to support genomics research in all subject areas.

Prepare for your next (generation) sequencing experiment as we’ll get into the nitty-gritty of some different methods, sample types and requirements.

There will be a fun online science quiz at the end - participate to win some swag!
