Academic Outreach

We like to stay in touch. We are a community-centered organization and as such our mandate is to educate students and staff on the newest developments in the next-generation sequencing realm. We give NGS-focused presentations to -omics courses at U of T. If you are from another institution and would like to book a presentation, tour, or other collaboration, please send us an email with a short introduction and description.
