About the event

This three-day symposium will combine presentation of use cases of long read RNAseq, sample processing hints and tips from the experts in sequencing facilities at Earlham Institute and SciLifeLab National Genomics Infrastructure, and technology developments from leading long read technology companies.

There will also be opportunities to discuss topics such as annotation, differential expression, low input single cell applications, exchanging expertise and challenges with other participants. 

Abstract submission:

We are offering the opportunity to present your research at the symposium, and abstracts should be submitted when you register. You will present either as a 10 minute talk or a poster, and can select your preference during the registration. The submission deadline for abstracts is Sunday 16 May 2021. 

  • All abstracts must be submitted electronically as part of your registration. Submissions via email will not be accepted
  • Abstract limits are 250 words (excluding title, authors and affiliations)
  • Presenting author should be highlighted in bold 
  • Abstracts will be reviewed within 14 days of the submission deadline and you will be informed of the outcome shortly thereafter

Who is this event for?

Research staff and students who are current or soon to be users of long read technology for the production of transcriptomic data and those analysing long read RNAseq data to produce genome annotations, differential expression analyses and those using RenSeq.

We particularly encourage early career researchers and PhD students to submit abstracts for selection for presentation. 



This training forms part of our BBSRC National Capability in Advanced Training
