Biweekly gathering initiated by Genomics Core to begin Monday

A new biweekly forum from the Genomics Core will focus on a variety of topics in genomics.

The first Purdue Genomics Core Forum will be 2 p.m. Monday (Oct. 2) in Whistler Hall, Room 116, and will continue every other Monday.

The topic of the session will be "Introduction to Small Genomics Projects Using WideSeq or Targeted Amplicon Methods." The forum is free and open to the public.

Phillip SanMiguel, director of the Purdue Genomics Core Facility, will give an overview of two commonly used services, WideSeq and Targeted Amplicon.

WideSeq is a service designed to allow access to the power of a genomic sequencer at a low ($20 per sample) cost of entry. Targeted Amplicon is a method to generate full-length sequences of loci up to 450 bp in length amplified, for example, from environmental samples.

Following the overview, SanMiguel will open the floor to questions about new projects or projects that have already been run. Likely attendees will peruse some WideSeq results, for instance, discussing how to use an integrative genomics viewer browser to view a .bam file generated from WideSeq data.
