About the Event
The SMRT Leiden 2021 – Young Investigator Virtual Conference includes two back-to-back events: the 6th annual SMRT Scientific Symposium and the SMRT Informatics Developers Meeting.
This year SMRT Leiden will put the spotlight on young investigators who will share their latest scientific discoveries and novel analytical achievements using PacBio long-read sequencing.
SMRT Scientific Symposium
This event will feature a mix of live and pre-recorded presentations, Q&A sessions, and panel discussions to enable interaction and active engagement among attendees. For one-and-a-half days, genomics experts will discuss their research in various fields. Several young investigators will share their experience during a career development panel discussion.
SMRT Informatics Developers Conference
A half-day collaborative event that focuses on developing and improving analysis tools for PacBio SMRT Sequencing data. This event will be packed with live panel discussions including several short presentations, brainstorming and idea exchange among software developers and the bioinformatics community. This year’s sessions will focus on the advancement of new and existing open-source tools for de novo assembly, genome phasing, variant detection, targeted sequencing and Iso-Seq analysis.
On-demand sessions include:
Presentations from PacBio users focused on key applications
Live Q&A sessions and panel discussions to interact with speakers
On-demand content for those new to PacBio
Opportunity to connect with your peers in the Community
