PoreCamp Australia 2017
PoreCamp.AU is a training "bootcamp" based around the Oxford Nanopore MinION sequencing platform,
held in Australia. It represents a unique opportunity to learn about this exciting new sequencing
platform from some of the leading experts in the field. It is a hands-on workshop run over 3 days,
covering the technology, library preparation techniques (rapid, 1D and 2D), starting runs,
bioinformatics analysis and interpretation.
The series was originally founded by Nick Loman and Joshua Quick (see UK PoreCamp).
