DNA Sequencing Natural History Specimens Using New Sequencing Platforms and Protocols
Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, UK
Tuesday 11th July 2017
One day meeting

Rapid developments in high-throughput sequencing platforms are providing a step change in the recoverability of DNA sequence data from natural history collections. Short-read massively parallel sequencers are intrinsically well suited to recovery of sequence data from the degraded DNAs typically present in natural history collections.
However, this field has been moving rapidly, and various groups have developed different approaches for how best to use these new technical advances.
This one day meeting will include talks focusing on two main questions:

*         What types of data can be routinely recovered from what type of material? (what can be done)

*         What protocols and platforms are proving most efficient? (how to do it)

Speakers include: Paul Hebert, Canada; Selina Brace, UK; Michelle Hart, UK; Sean Prosser, Canada; Pierre Taberlet, France; Alfried Vogler, UK; Guillaume Besnard, France; Freek Bakker, Netherlands; Sandy Knapp, UK.

Organiser: Pete Hollingsworth Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh
