registration is open for the 2nd edition of the course GENOME ASSEMBLY USING OXFORD NANOPORE SEQUENCING.
Format and dates: online, March 6th– 10th
This course will introduce participants to a range of methods to complete the steps required to process raw Oxford Nanopore Technologies sequencing data into a fully assembled, polished and quality controlled genome assembly, both with and without accompanying short reads, and with and without a reference genome. Over five days, we will include a combination of both theoretical background and practical application using model viral and bacterial datasets, concluding with a full run-through of the assembly, polishing and quality control pipeline at each course participants’ own pace.
● Learn the advantages and disadvantages of long-read sequencing
● Understand the steps involved in genome assembly using long read data
● Gain practical experience in choosing and using the optimal tools for a variety of dataset types, including microbiome, bacterial, viral and mammalian
