Academic Outreach

We are a community-centered organization and as such our mandate is to educate students and staff on the newest developments in the next-generation sequencing realm. If you would like to book a lecture, tour, or other collaboration, please send us an email with information about your course.

Please also feel free to use our Guide to NGS Project Planning as a resource for students.
