Event Overview

Sequencing across repetitive DNA regions has challenged researchers attempting to complete genome sequencing projects and study important cellular processes such as centromere formation. With recent developments in long-read sequencing technologies, scientists can finally resolve these regions and investigate the genetic and epigenetic landscapes of their study species. In this webinar brought to you by Oxford Nanopore, Matthew Naish will discuss how he used long-read sequencing technologies to generate a de novo genome assembly of Arabidopsis thaliana that fully resolves all five centromeres.

Topics to be covered

  • Long-read sequencing
  • De novo genome assembly and validation
  • The genetic and epigenetic landscape of Arabidopsis centromeres

  • Available NOW on demand
