BCBC 2019 Nanopore Symposium

The BCBC is excited to host Applying nanopore sequencing technology in biological research on October 28 & 29, 2019!


Oct 28th: Speakers will showcase how they are using Oxford Nanopore Technology in their research. (Free, registration appreciated)


Oct 29th: Hands-on workshops on how to make a nanopore library, perform sequencing on a flow cell, and analyze the output. Please contact Susan Strickler (srs57@cornell.edu) to register for the workshop. (Fee $50)


See below for our full line-up of speakers.
