-BIONANO LUNCH AND LEARN-
Friday - June 14 - 12-1pm
UC Irvine - Sprague Hall Rm 105
Find out how high-throughput genome mapping resolves DNA structural variations in a way that can't be done with NGS. Dr. Sven Bocklan from Bionano Genomics will give a short seminar on how their Saphyr platform achieves genome wide direct visualization of chromosomal abnormalities with much higher sensitivity and precision than sequencing-based methods.
-game of genomes networking night-
Wed. - June 19 - 6-8:30pm
Irvine WeWork @ The Boardwalk
Join OCBN for a night of networking and discussion about the current state and future direction of genomics in research, healthcare, and beyond. We'll also have a game to test your knowledge on the subject with a prize for the winner! Don't forget that friends and colleagues are always welcome! This event is sponsored by Bionano who will give a brief introduction to their high-throughput genome mapping platform at 7pm.
