The Advanced Genomics Core and Illumina host a sold-out event at U-M.
On Wednesday, February 5th, 177 U-M researchers came out in droves to learn from the technical experts of Illumina! Topics presented at the seminar included:
- RNA-seq overview and related applications (ex. ATAC-seq)
- Experimental Design for successful RNA-seq Projects
- RNA quality assessment through data processing
- RNA-seq Bioinformatics considerations and applications, including Data Analysis and interpretation in BaseSpace™ Sequence Hub
The adage “Garbage in, garbage out” was also mentioned multiple times during this event. Researchers walked away with a better understanding of the big picture including what happens on the sequencer with each flow and imaging cycle.
We would like to extend a thank you to our Illumina team: Scott Evans, Rebecca Enigk, Ryan Hegarty, Mike Imes and Ming Wu for sharing their technical expertise with the University of Michigan research community.
