If you are interested in learning about Genome Assembly and Annotation, have a look at our course: https://www.physalia-courses.org/courses-workshops/course20/
Dates: Online, March 18th-22nd
This course will introduce biologists and bioinformaticians to the concepts of de novo genome assembly and annotation, providing a theoretical framework and practical examples. By the end of the course the students will be able to understand what is needed to generate an annotated and curated reference genome of high-quality.
The course is aimed at researchers interested in learning more about genome assembly and annotation. It will include information useful to both beginners and more advanced users. We will start by introducing general assembly and annotation concepts and algorithms, providing a historical context. We will then describe all major components of a typical genome assembly workflow using the Vertebrate Genomes Project assembly pipeline as example. We will further analyse the multiple ways a genome can be annotated to maximize its utility for downstream analyses. There will be a mix of lectures and hands-on practical exercises, either using graphical interfaces (https://assembly.usegalaxy.eu/) and basic command line.
