Dear all,

We are excited to announce our upcoming online course, "Introduction to Genome Annotation" scheduled for May 13-17, 2024.

Course website:

In this course, we will delve into the essential processes and strategies required to start the annotation of your target genome addressing challenges posed by genome characteristics and specificities.

The course will start with an overview of the samples’ quality needed to make the best out of the downstream process and then the state-of-the-art sequencing technologies used for genome annotation, discussing pros and cons of each platform. Then, we will go through the basic strategies for genome annotation, which are prediction, ab initio and de novo transcriptome assembly, mainly for processing short read data. This will include learning about different approaches for annotating protein-coding genes in eukaryotic species via projection and evidence guided gene prediction. Discuss the challenges of annotation in different contexts. We will build gene models, explore the use of combiners for integrating alternative gene predictions and assess the accuracy of different annotation tools, assess the output quality and visualise it.
