Multi-Omics: Tools for Unraveling Biological Complexity & Heterogeneity

Studies in genomics, transcriptomics, and epigenomics have shaped our understanding of cellular complexity and heterogeneity. Technological advances are now enabling cost-efficient, high-throughput analysis of biological molecules, and have offered researchers an opportunity to combine the interrogation of DNA, RNA, and epigenome in order to better understand genotype-phenotype interactions. In this seminar, we will review recent research that incorporates multi-omic approaches and introduce the tools that enabled this research, which include sequencing and array-based technologies, and library prep solutions for both bulk and single-cell analysis.

Illumina Next-Generation Sequencing Seminar at UIUC

Please join us for an informative seminar. There will be two separate sessions followed by an informal office hour led by a field applications scientist. Researchers are invited to attend one or all of the sessions. 

9:15 AM - Session I
Introduction to sequencing based methods to assess gene expression and regulation
This presentation will provide an overview of traditional RNA-Seq applications for surveying the transcribed regions of the genome and provide great utility in assessing differential gene expression. We will also discuss how insight into gene regulation can be achieved through ChIP-Seq and methylation sequencing methods.

10:00 AM - Session II
Best Practices for Illumina Library Preparations
An Illumina Field Applications Scientist will discuss what goes into generating a successful library for sequencing on all Illumina platforms. The discussion will include quality control of DNA/RNA input, detection and removal of adapter dimer, the importance of utilizing dual index strategies, and index pooling guidelines. The differences between the Illumina sequencing platforms will be highlighted to help identify what sequencer is appropriate for specific projects.

Illumina Immuno-Oncology Seminar: Boston

Recent advances in our understanding of how the immune system interacts with and fights cancer have revolutionized cancer research and treatment.

The power of genomics in Immuno-Oncology is just starting to be comprehended and applied to this dynamic space. Immune cell repertoire sequencing, RNA-Seq and expression analysis of the tumor microenvironment, and the detection and prediction of immune stimulatory neoantigens are all examples of how genomics can help to answer many of the unknown questions that still exist. 

Please join us for a unique opportunity where we will bring together speakers from across the academic, clinical, and biotechnology spectrum to discuss how they are using next-generation sequencing in this exciting space. Whether you are interested in advancing your research, bringing game-changing therapies to market, or partnering to maximize the effectiveness of translational studies, this event aims to provide the research community with insights and ideas to further our understanding of how the immune system can be optimized to fight cancer.
