SPECIAL INFORMATIONAL SEMINAR:  DOVETAIL GENOMICS


 


When: Wednesday July 26, 11AM


Where: Genomics Auditorium, 1102A Genomics Building


Speaker: Mark Daley


Sponsored by the Institute for Integrative Genome Biology


 


SUMMARY


A contiguous and accurate genome assembly is a crucial first step in fully understanding the biology of any organism.  Dovetail Genomics is the leading service provider for high quality genome assemblies.  To date, we have completed more than 400 projects, spanning many classes of organisms from plants, reptiles, amphibians, fish, mammals, birds, insects and more. Using our two complementary scaffolding methods, Chicago and Dovetail Hi-C, we are dramatically increasing the contiguity and accuracy of genome assemblies, enabling true full-chromosome length scaffolding.  


 


This seminar will provide an update on our most current technologies, and how they are improving genome assembly quality. Many UC researchers are benefiting from Dovetail, and we will provide a summary of their findings, including details on how their Dovetail assembly contributed to better science.


 


Hope to see you there!
