Start Your Journey to Discovery with Highly Accurate Long-Read Sequencing
About the Event
Welcome to the PacBio Neuroscience Day where we aim to empower scientists on their journey of discovery.
Join the event to learn how highly accurate long-read sequencing can be used at every stage of your research, from disease variant identification to elucidation of the disease mechanisms and screening disease cohorts.
Engage with leading scientists across three session tracks to learn from their experiences and explore the latest tools to advance your science.
Track 1: Identify Disease Genes and Causative Variants
Hear how scientists are using whole-genomelong-read sequencing to identify disease genes, and causative variants that were previously missed by other technologies, to solve rare and Mendelian diseases.
Track 2: Unravel the Disease Mechanism
Learn how targeted sequencing and full-length RNA sequencing, both on a whole transcriptome as well as on a single-cell level, are helping scientists to elucidate the disease mechanisms of neurological conditions including Alzheimer's disease.
Track 3: Screen Large Cohorts
Join scientists to explore how amplicon and No-Amp targeted sequencing are enabling screening cohorts for disease variants in some of the most challenging regions of the human genome that remain inaccessible to other technologies.
