3rd READNA Symposium on Advanced Nucleic Acid Analysis


The public symposium will provide an overview of key technological breakthroughs achieved during the 4 years of the READNA project. Key concepts that will be presented include DNA nanopore sequencing, DNA manipulation and analysis within nanofluidic devices and single cell sequencing within tissue samples. The symposium talks will be complemented by members of the READNA Scientific Advisory Board, who will discuss latest developments in Epigenetic and Single Molecule research. Finally data analysis solutions for current DNA sequencing technologies will be presented by researchers based in Barcelona.
