SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ--(Marketwire - September 17, 2009) - GENEWIZ, Inc., the leading provider of
sequencing, has planned a series of webinars in September and October
to help biomedical, agricultural, environmental, and other researchers
become familiar with DNA sequencing best practices, and to optimize their
results. The webinars are suitable for all levels of DNA sequencing users,
and are offered free of charge.
These informational online webinar sessions are appropriate for academic,
pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and government researchers. Attending
requires only a web browser and telephone line. Dr. Sarah Eckenrode,
GENEWIZ Director of Technical Support, will be the presenter.
The first webinar, "DNA Sequencing 101: Mastering the Basics," is designed
to assist researchers who are early in their understanding of DNA
sequencing, and for any scientist wanting a refresher. Topics include
practical information about DNA sequencing such as principles of DNA
sequencing, how to design DNA sequencing primers, dilution calculations
used in preparing DNA sequencing samples, and how to interpret DNA
sequencing data with free software tools.
Two sessions of "DNA Sequencing 101" are offered:
Thursday, Sept. 24, 1:30 - 2:30PM EDT
Tuesday, Sept. 29, 3:00 - 4:00PM EDT
The second webinar, "Getting a Great DNA Sequencing Reaction," is
beneficial for intermediate and advanced sequencers, as well as for new
users who have completed "DNA Sequencing 101." Topics include reading
chromatograms to optimize sequencing reactions, difficult template
sequencing including hairpins and GC-rich DNA, bacterial colony sequencing,
the top 5 sequencing issues and how to resolve them, and practical tips for
successfully sequencing PCR products.
"Getting a Great DNA Sequencing Reaction" is offered on Tuesday, Oct. 27,
1:30 - 2:30 PM EDT.
