The 2nd Virtual Training Workshop on PacBio Sequel IIe by the Earth BioGenome Project Hong Kong

The Chinese University of Hong Kong—an APRU member—is going to host the 2nd virtual training workshop on PacBio Sequel IIe on August 5, 2023 which is supported by the Earth BioGenome Project Hong Kong.

The workshop will feature the concept, operational workflow, and data analysis of PacBio sequencing technique. It is designed for both undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as researchers who have basic knowledge on molecular biology and are interested in genome sequencing and assembly.

Date: August 5, 2023 (HKT)

Time: 08:45 – 12:15 and 13:45 – 16:30 (HKT)

Venue (Hybrid): Zoom and Room297, Science Center, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

Earth BioGenome Project: Hong Kong

The Earth BioGenome Project, which has been described as a moonshot project for biology, aims to sequence, catalogue, and analyse the genomes of all eukaryotes on Earth, including animals, fungi, and plants. The Hong Kong hub of the Earth BioGenome Project will focus on the organisms that are in high concern and great interest in Hong Kong as its starting point.

The benefits of revealing the genomes of all animals, fungi, and plants in different parts in the world will form an informative base to solve many current issues in the human society. Such benefits could range from increasing the understanding of how biodiversity is evolving under climate change, conservation of endangered species, provision of ecosystem services, to discovering of hidden biological knowledge for new technological inventions and development.
