RNA Sequencing Seminar – Karolinska Institutet and Illumina

for the Allergy, Immunology and Inflammation (Aii) doctoral education program

Date: Wednesday 8 October 2014 Time: 13 –16 Venue: Westinrummet Alfred Nobels Allé 8, Huddinge (7th floor)

Next generation sequencing (NGS) has led a revolution in life science research and has driven breakthrough findings leading to a deeper understanding of genomes, transcriptomes and biological processes in health and disease.

Join Karolinska Institutet and Illumina for a half-day seminar introducing this powerful technology. During the seminar you will learn the basics of NGS and get an insight into the wide array of applications it enables. Presentations by invited speakers will further illuminate how NGS can be applied in multiple areas.

The event also offers an opportunity to speak one-on-one with Illumina specialists on how next generation sequencing can impact your work on DNA and RNA applications.
