Introduction to Next-Generation Sequencing-DNA

This training will give you an excellent understanding of Illumina sequencing technology and its possible applications in DNA analysis. The course gives an overview of each step of a comprehensive sequencing workflow: from considerations for experimental design; choice of sample preparation method and sequencer; down to challenges of data analysis. You will have an opportunity to discuss your future projects with our experts and have a chance to set up your first sequencing run.

Target audience: Life scientists who have no or very limited experience with Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS), but who would like to gain an understanding of the technology.

Objectives: At the end of the training you will:

  • Be familiar with popular NGS applications and how they can change the way you do your research
  • Gain a good understanding of the intricacies of Illumina sequencing technology
  • Get practical experience in key steps of library preparation in our fully equipped and Illumina-workflows validated lab
  • Set up a run on an Illumina sequencer
