Add to iCal Calendar 0

Date(s) - 21 Aug 2019
11:00 AM - 2:00 PM

U of A, Keating Research Building/BIO5 Institute

PacBio SMRT Sequencing is HERE! Attend to learn more.

Join scientists from PacBio and members of the Arizona Genomics Institute as they update you on the latest SMRT Sequencing applications and capabilities. Highly accurate long read sequencing via the Sequel II System are now available at your local core (a PacBio Certified Service Provider) and you could win a chance at sequencing your first project FREE through the AGI Local SMRT Grant Program. Attend to get more details and ideas on how to Sequence with Confidence with SMRT Sequencing.

Join us – register now for this exciting seminar!
