Winston, Stephanie and Isac head to AGBT 2017

Winston, Stephanie and Isac just went down to AGBT in Hollywood, FL (

Stephanie has a talk – in the Tuesday evening (8:50-9:10PM) concurrent session (GENERAL BIOLOGY) – AGBT_2017_shao.

Isac is presenting a poster about his work on characterizing structural variants and single nucleotide variations with solution-phase capture coupled to nanopore sequencing – Isac_AGBT17_v3 copy.

And finally, Winston is presenting some of Rachael’s work hummingbird transcriptome sequencing with PacBio’s IsoSeq technology – AGBT2017_Timp_ruby_wta.

Also – please go to Jared Simpson’s talk on Thursday afternoon – he’s using some of the nanopore methylation characterization work we’ve done together on the recent NA12878 dataset.

CTY Scholar Abby Cohen Presents Nanopore Mitochondrial Sequencing Work

Over the past 6 weeks we were lucky enough to have Abby Cohen, part of the Center for Talented Youth (CTY) cohort of high school students, come and work in our lab on mitochondrial DNA sequencing. Her work culminated in a poster presentation of her results, where she actually had some preliminary data showing full-length mitochondrial genome sequencing on the Oxford Nanopore minION sequencers. Great work Abby!

Here’s a link to the poster: abby mito poster_rw4-2.
