Tutorial Details: Illumina Sequence Analyzer I: Technology, Application, and Data Analysis

Date: Tuesday, February 22, 2011, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm
Location: 402 Walter
Instructor(s): Zheng Jin Tu, MSI

The operation of the Illumina/Solexa Genome Analyzers, GAIIx and HiSeq2000, at the Biomedical Genomics Center allows researchers at the University of Minnesota to generate tens of gigabases of DNA sequences in a single run. This tutorial will present a technical review of Illumina/Solexa Genome Analyzers. We will also discuss their applications in various biomedical research fields. Finally, we will introduce data and data types generated by Illumina/Solexa sequencers and present a general overview of new generation sequencing data analysis.

This tutorial will also be webcast. Instructions for accessing the tutorial via live streaming video can be found at
