Special Guest Speaker from Sweden:

At SciLifeLab, Uppsala University, we have for a long time been developing new SMRT sequencing applications for medical diagnostics and human genetics research. This includes many different types of projects, from sequencing of single genes to de novo assembly of complete human genomes. My presentation will give an overview of some of our key developments, including a new method to study CRISPR-Cas9 off-target effects using long reads.
