Hackatron to code Opentrons pipetting robots for DNA amplicons and libraries for Sanger, Illumina & ONT Minion sequencing. Opentrons are open-source pipetting robots for biologists. Flexible, accessible & affordable lab robots allow life scientists to do more science & less pipetting. Programming of the robots use python language. Protocols are coded as open-source and available for the community.
This event is part of our new initiative Genomics Africa: New technologies in Africa: Opentrons Robotic Pipetting Hackatron, Durban, 20 July-3 August 2019.
EVENT IS FREE AND KRISP WILL PROVIDE TEAS, COFFEES (ESPRESSO & CAPPUCCINOS), LUNCH AND A FUN ENVIRONMENT. ALL OF THE PROTOCOLS CODED IN OPENTRONS WILL BE OPEN
