About us​

This event is organized by the NGI Uppsala

The National Genomics Infrastructure (NGI) is hosted by Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab), a Swedish national center for molecular biosciences with focus on health and environmental research.

NGI is one of SciLifeLab’s largest technical platforms both in terms of number of projects and number of users. It provides access to technology for massively parallel/next generation DNA sequencing, genotyping at all scales and associated bioinformatics support to researchers based in Sweden. It comprises four facilities, NGI Stockholm (Application Development and Production) and NGI Uppsala (SNP&SEQ Technology Platform and Uppsala Genome Center). ​

Aim of this event

To inform the scientific community, both in Sweden and internationally, about the latest advances in long-read sequencing technologies and their applications.

Target group

Anyone interested in long-read sequencing technology is welcome. We hope that this event will provide useful information to a broad community, from savvy users to beginners and everybody else who would just like to get more information about this sequencing type.
