5th Workshop on the Application of Next Generation Sequencing to Repetitive DNA Analysis in Plants

On May 24-26, Institute of Plant Molecular Biology BC CAS organizes the workshop focusing on theoretical and practical aspects of using next generation sequencing (NGS) data for analyzing repeat composition of plant genomes.

Special emphasis will be given to repeat characterization methods implemented in the RepeatExplorer pipeline, including practical training in using the pipeline. The workshop should also serve as a platform for exchange of ideas and latest results with ample time dedicated to open discussions. Participants are encouraged to make short presentations of their research related to the workshop topic and/or bring their own data for practical training.

The workshop is organized by the Laboratory of Molecular Cytogenetics of the Biology Centre CAS. It will take place at the Academy of Sciences / University campus in Ceske Budejovice, Czech Republic. The meeting programme will include theoretical lectures and research reports combined with hands-on training (no programming skills required).
