Genome Assembly  
May 2,9 2016

This workshop will cover de novo genome assembly using SOAPdenovo, with introduction to contig scaffolding and genome annotation. Each session will include lecture, followed by hands-on time.  Workshop attendees will need to bring your own laptop computers to the workshop. (You do not need to have a powerful laptop computer for this workshop, as the laptops would serve as terminals and the real computation will be done on the Bioinformatics Facility's servers.) There will be step-by-step instructions for each exercise, which can be done either at home or at post-lecture hands-on time. The registration fee is $100.

Bioinformatics Facility is organizing 6 workshops in the Spring 2016 - if you'd like to register for all of them at a reduced rate please go to this page.

The workshop will include practical exercises, that can be conducted on BioHPC Lab workstations especially reserved for the workshop. Our workstations run Linux operating system, so if you are going to use our machines and are new to Linux computing environment you may want to attend our free  workshops "Introduction to BioHPC Lab" and "Linux for Biologists". You can also use both workshop materials posted online to refresh your Linux skills:

Linux for Biologists Part 1   Linux for Biologists Part 2

Access to BioHPC Lab workstations requires a Lab account. If you do not yet have an account on BioHPC Lab system, we will create one for you. Also, we will assign a machine for you to work on during and after the workshop.

The machine allocations are posted here.
