Our nanopore sequencing workshop is targeted at beginners and intermediate users of
the Oxford Nanopore MinION sequencing platform. It represents a unique opportunity
to learn more about this exciting and mature sequencing platform from experienced users.
It is an hands-on workshop run over 3 days, covering the technology,
DNA sample QC, library preparation techniques (rapid, 1D and 1D^2), starting runs,
bioinformatics analysis and interpretation.

The workshop is based on previous efforts from leaders in the field who started UK PoreCamp
(Josh Quick and Nick Lohman) and participated in porecamp.AU. The workshop is targeted at
the sequencing community at ANU, CSIRO, University Canberra, Australian and afar.

Applications for the Nanopore sequencing workshop are now open! 10 spots are reserved
for local researchers at ANU while another 20 are open to the wider community. All
applications are strictly competitive and aimed at ensuring diversity.

The workshop will be held at the Ecogenomics and Bioinformatics Lab (EBL) at the
Australian National University, Canberra, from 14th to 16th of June 2017.

Applications are now open and will close 1st of May 2017.
