Long-Read Sequencing, October 4-6 2021

Empower your research with long-read sequencing technologies

In recent years, long-read DNA sequencing technologies has replaced short-read sequencing as the gold standard solution for a wide range of genomics applications. In addition to producing high quality de novo genome assembly, long-read technologies can be used to study complex structural variation, full-length RNA isoforms, detection of epigenetic signals, and much more. The adaptation of long-read sequencing is sweeping through several areas of the life sciences including agricultural, environmental, and medical research.

Join us in Uppsala in October to catch up with the latest developments in long-read sequencing technologies and their applications, get inspired by peers presenting their research, and enjoy discussions with leading experts and company representatives.


Due to the current international corona virus/Covid-19 situation, the organizing committee has made the decision to postpone LRUA20 to October 2021. The new dates for the 2021 LRUA in Uppsala, Sweden – are October 4-6, 2021.

Registration is temporarily closed. We plan to open it again after the original conference dates in October 2020.
