  • Illumina DNA Prep (formerly Nextera DNA Flex): Introduction

    Recorded Webinar (January 2022) | IIllumina Technical Support invites you to join us for an introductory presentation on the new Illumina DNA Prep kit, formerly known as Nextera DNA Flex. This webinar is geared towards new and intermediate users with a basic knowledge of next generation sequencing. This session covers sample to library workflow, and tips for a successful library prep.

  • Library QC and Troubleshooting with the BioAnalyzer and Fragment Analyzer

    Recorded Webinar (October 2021) | Does my library look good to sequence? What’s that peak? This webinar will address how to use the Agilent BioAnalyzer to check library quality prior to sequencing, and troubleshoot sample preparation. This webinar is geared toward new and intermediate users, and will cover how to identify features of an ideal library trace, recognize potential issues, and prevent potential issues.

  • Metagenomics Part I: Introduction to Library Preparation and Sequencing (Portuguese)

    Upcoming Webinar | Este webinar será a primeira parte de uma série de 2 webinars sobre Metagenômica. O time de Suporte Técnico da Illumina convida você a se juntar a nós para discutir o fluxo de trabalho para um projeto de sequenciamento de metagenômica. Este webinar é ideal para usuários novos e intermediários em relação à tecnologia illumina de sequenciamento,  que tenham interesse em metagenômica. Durante essa primeira parte, discutiremos sobre metagenômica de alvos específicos e sequenciamento metagenômico total (shotgun), incluindo os seguintes tópicos: uma visão geral de metagenômica, introdução a abordagens experimentais, estratégias de preparo de biblioteca e suas considerações, opções de sequenciamento, avaliação das métricas da corrida, e uma visão geral da análise de dados.
