Single Molecule DNA Mapping Workshop 2015

Date: Monday 5 October 2015

Location: Technical University of Denmark, Anker Engelundsvej 1, Building 101, entrance 101A, Meeting Center, Room s04

The workshop attracted around 40 people from academia and industry.

The single molecule analysis of DNA in its native long linear form is having an increasing impact on the study of the structure genomes and has begun to be used in molecular diagnostics. The MapDNA workshop brings together researchers at the cutting edge of single molecule DNA analysis in nanofluidic devices and on surfaces.
