Event description

Description

New genome sequencing technologies are producing much longer reads. This workshop combines an introductory presentation to introduce the theory of de novo genome assembly with hands-on practice. It will cover long-read technologies and data types, and provide an overview of genome assembly methods. You will use command-line tools to perform long-read assembly and short-read polishing of bacterial genome data.

Prerequisites:

This workshop requires a familiarity with Unix and genomics concepts.

Workshop attendees must bring a laptop.
