The following workshops are available:
  • Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) Ancestry 

    This workshop focuses on tracing ancestry with mtDNA, sp
    ith the amplification and phylogenetic inferences of the mtDNA D-loop. By the end of this hand
    s-on workshop, the attendees will have a better knowledge of gDNA extraction from their own hair shafts, PCR of the mtDNA D-loop region, Sanger Sequencing and phylogenetic analyses combining their mtDNA sequences with those from different regions, acquired from GenBank.

  • RNA-Sequencing

    This workshop focuses on RNA library preparation based on Illumina Sequencing Technologies. At the end of this workshop, the attendees will be able to prepare Stranded-mRNA libraries and perform Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) on an Illumina MiSeq.

  • Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS)

    This workshop focuses on Whole Genome Sequencing Applications and genome assembly without a reference genome. At the end of this workshop, attendees will be able to prepare DNA libraries for NGS on Illumina platforms. Library preparations technique will depend on the complexity of the genome provided for the workshop.

  • iTags Sequencing

    This workshop focuses on the generation of 16S rRNA to study the microbial communities present in certain populations. The 16S region is amplified and subsequently sequenced on an Illumina MiSeq.
