Proximity ligation technology generates multi-dimensional next-generation sequencing data that is proving to solve unmet needs in genomic research. Learn about some of the applications for this datatype and specifically how it helps create high-quality assemblies to overcome challenges of working with non-model organism genomes.
This webinar will highlight three projects where proximity ligation technology and scaffolding software were used to create high-quality and highly contiguous genome assemblies for different organisms. Our speakers will also discuss the scientific discoveries enabled by these high-quality genome assemblies.
Join this webinar to:
- Learn how proximity ligation technology works and the applications for this multi-dimensional NGS datatype from cancer research to genome assembly
- Hear how proximity ligation overcomes one of the main challenges of studying non-model organisms: being able to easily generate high-quality and contiguous genome assemblies
