Plant sequencing webinar:  Fast isogenic Arabidopsis mapping-by-sequencing  on Ion PGMTM.  In the recent publication in Plant Physiology, Dr. Franziska Turck and her team introduced deep candidate resequencing (dCARE) using the Ion PGM™ Sequencer to their Arabidopsis mutant identification pipeline. 

Join us to learn Dr. Turck’s opinion about the application of the isogenic mapping approach for plant gene identification and how the fast and cost-effective barcoding Ion PGM™ system improves her deep sequencing workflow.
