EMBL Course: RNA Sequencing Library Preparation - How Low Can You Go?

EMBL Course

Aim of this course is to prepare RNA libraries for Illumina sequencing by using the novel NEBNext Ultra II Directional RNA kit for low input applications. Throughout the course, we will be generating libraries from ultra- low as well as from normal amounts of RNA (1 ng to 50 ng) input to better understand the impact of input amounts and PCR cycles on the bioinformatics dealing with complexity, coverage, duplication rates and uniformity of libraries. The course participants will be guided with tips and tricks through the work flow. Finally, the bioinformatics analysis of the data will be discussed. Selected participants who – PRIOR to the course - will be able to prove their samples have required quality according to provided specifications will have the chance to bring maximum two of their own eukaryotic total RNA samples to process. At least 100ng of sample will be required for attendee samples.

JPI HDHL will organise a conference on “Diet as leverage point towards a healthy and sustainable food system” in Brussels. During this conference, a workshop - JPI HDHL, FIT4FOOD2030 will be organised, from 14.00-16.15. This workshop will focus on the role that research funders can play in increasing the impact of the research that they fund. Applying a holistic or systems approach and Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) are ways to make the R&I system more effective, particularly when dealing with complex challenges like transition of the food system. The policy-science interface and the role of funding instruments will also be discussed. Experts from the Fit4Food2030 consortium, a project in which innovative R&I approaches are key, will present during this workshop and guide interactive exchange. It is primarily aimed at public funding agencies, foundations and private funders, but open to everyone.
