The LongTREC program brings together 11 European public and private host institutions to create a European network of experts in long reads sequencing technologies, data integration and software development. In addition, we have the support of 17 partner organizations from many diverse research environments who are leaders in complementary aspects of the lrRNA-seq roadmap. The consortium has been carefully designed to combine specific competences that can be jointly exploited to address the necessities of the LongTREC research and training program.
