BioNotes

April 11 through April 15, 2016


Monday, April 11, 11:00 am, 1302 COM—GENOMICS/PROTEOMICS GROUP MEETING AND SEMINAR, "Introduction to SMRT technology and its applications," Andy Larrea, Representative, Pacific Biosciences. Host: Dr. Daniel Vera, Center for Genomics and Personalized Medicine, Florida State University. Single molecule real-time (SMRT) sequencing, commonly called 'Pac-Bio sequencing', is characterized by long (>10,000bp),unbiased reads with high consensus accuracy, allowing for contiguous and comprehensive views of genomes, epigenomes and transcriptomes. This introduction will demonstrate improved de novo genome assemblies, characterization of structural genetic diversity, resolution of previously unsequenceable genome regions, characterization of full length mRNA transcripts and splicing isoforms in human and complex transcriptomes.

Monday, April 11, 12:00 pm, KIN 2057—POSTDOCTORAL MENTORING WORKSHOP LECTURE AND LUNCH, "You have your lab all set up, now what?," Dr. David Houle, Department of Biological Science, FSU. Host: Erminia Fardone, PostDoctoral Affairs representative for Biological Science.
