Genome assembly using Galaxy

Recommended Participants

Biologists and bioinformaticians interested in genome sequencing and the assembly process, particularly for bacteria. No prior bioinformatics knowledge is required.

Syllabus

  • Tools and workflows of de novo genome assembly
  • Online resources for bacterial genome annotation
  • Identifying genomic features of interest, including insertions, deletions and duplications
  • Use of the Galaxy platform for genome analysis

Learning Objectives: 

  • Perform QC evaluation and filtering on next-generation sequencing data
  • Carry out a bacterial genome assembly using the Galaxy interface
  • Generate preliminary annotation data for a bacterial genome sequence
  • Use comparative genomics approaches to identify large genomic insertions and deletions
