During a live webinar on September 17, 2014, Mick Watson, Head of Bioinformatics, Edinburgh Genomics, University of Edinburgh, will discuss how he developed probe sets to capture domestic pig (Sus scrofa) exonic sequences based upon the current Ensembl pig gene annotation supplemented with mapped expressed sequence tags (ESTs). The broadcast begins at 12pm EDT.

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) August 22, 2014

The identification of protein-coding variants underlying phenotypic traits in model organisms can be accelerated by exome sequencing. Built on Roche NimbleGens proprietary probe design and manufacturing technologies, the custom SeqCap EZ Developer system has been a proven tool for such research.

Mr. Watson will additionally present how he achieved coverage statistics similar to those seen with commercially available human and mouse exome kits. With over 236,000 SNPs and over 28,000 indels revealed, this exome capture provides a tool to identify coding region variation associated with production traits, and to improve genomic assemblies in the vicinity of protein-coding genes in the pig.

This webinar will benefit agriculture or model organism researchers, as well as scientists working on any genomes less well-annotated than human or mouse.
