PacBio Sequel training @Yokohama RIKEN


 
 
PacBio Sequel training was held for five days. The schedule of training included from sample preparation untill sequencing. During the training, there was also a bioinformatics seminar by PacBio Asia. I hope the training was fruitful for everyone. Attendees were from a variety of research fields in symbiology so it was also a great opportunity to get to know each other.
