Porecamp.AU – February 8-10, 2017

The Centre for Systems Genomics are helping to host  together with AGRF and others this coming Feb at The University of Melbourne.

PoreCamp.AU is a training “bootcamp” based around the Oxford Nanopore MinION sequencing platform. It represents a unique opportunity to learn about this exciting new sequencing platform from some of the leading experts in the field. It is an hands-on workshop run over 3 days, covering the technology, library preparation techniques (rapid, 1D and 2D), starting runs, bioinformatics analysis and interpretation.

The series was originally founded by Nick Loman and Joshua Quick
(see https://porecamp.github.io/).

Applications for PoreCamp.AU 2017 are now open!

30 applicants will be selected to receive direct training from experienced MinION users from around the world, at the University of Melbourne from 8th-10th February 2017
(immediately prior to the Lorne Genome conference).
