3rd generation sequencing technologies, also known as long-read sequencing, is continuing to revolutionise DNA and RNA sequencing. Increased read lengths enable complete gene isoform sequencing, gap closing of existing genome assemblies and sequencing and assembly of complete microbial genomes. This year’s TOAST workshop will be focused on whole genome sequencing using the handheld MinION sequencer developed by Oxford Nanopore. Significantly, the workshop will include hands-on sequencing and downstream data analysis.

Subtopics include:

  • Library prep and genome sequencing using a MinION
  • Basecalling live vs local
  • Assembly and error correction of long reads
  • Hybrid assembly & polishing of microbial genomes


  • Tonia Russel (Ramaciotti)
