|Soil&Water Seminar, May2: : "Application of next-generation DNA sequencing to the analysis of long and short PCR products "
The Soil&Water seminar at 12pm on Weds, May 2nd, will be given by Richard Allcock, with an introduction by Tony O'Donnell, Dean of Science. All welcome!
TITLE: "Application of next-generation DNA sequencing to the analysis of long and short PCR products"
Richard Allcock is the Scientist-in-Charge of the LotteryWest State Biomedical Facility – Genomics (LSBFG) based at Royal Perth Hospital. He is also a member of the School of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Western Australia and a Founding Fellow of the Faculty of Science of the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia. He has expertise in the analysis of DNA and detection of sequence variants. Under his direction, LSBFG performs next-generation sequencing (FLX/454, SOLID, Ion Torrent) Sanger sequencing and a host of other genetic and genomic analyses. Richard Allcock has analysed many DNA sequence variants and their affect on function, haplotypic arrangements and role in disease susceptibility/resistance. He has published widely in this area, collaborating with many researchers across Western Australia and internationally.
As a sequencing tragic, Richard has established links with Tony O’Donnell and Andrew Whiteley to see how these sequencing technologies can be routinely and cheaply applied to the analysis of agricultural and environmental samples. As part of this collaboration FNAS have funded an ion Torrent PGM sequencer housed at Royal Perth Hospital and it is this device that he’ll be talking about today.
