At ASMS 2019, SCIEX made a technology announcement of Acoustic Ejection Mass Spectrometry (AEMS) which will shortly be commercialized as Echo® MS in early 2020.
This webinar will provide insights into the fundamentals of the technology and how it harnesses the two unique technologies, Acoustic Droplet Ejection (ADE) and the Open Port Interface (OPI), combined with the quantitative power of SCIEX mass spectrometry. Read More Below
De novo sequencing of plant genomes can be challenging due to large genome sizes, high levels of repeat content, multiple chromosome copies (ploidy) and high diversity between different plant samples.
Each of these challenges needs to be addressed in order to generate highly contiguous genome assemblies. For example, DNA extraction must be optimized for each plant species being studied, while different analysis parameters are required for homozygous diploid genomes than for heterozygous tetraploid genomes.
To successfully overcome such issues, we generally split the sequencing workflow into three components: DNA extraction (including plant cultivation), library preparation (including size-selection) and data analysis (from basecalling to assembly polishing).
This webinar will focus on all three areas of de novo genome sequencing in plants, providing users with guidance on how to handle sequencing projects in the lab, as well as the associated data analysis.
