Genome Assembly and Annotation

01/07/2019 - 05/07/2019 All day

ELIXIR-IIB is organizing a training course on Genome Assembly and Annotation, in Milan, Italy.
Course Description The course will take the participants through all steps of a genome assembly and annotation project, starting with quality control, moving into genome assembly and assembly validation, and ending with structural and functional annotation. Both short and long read technologies will be discussed, as well as supporting technologies. Lectures are mixed with practicals, with a majority of the time spent doing hands-on analyses in the command terminal. Focus is on eukaryotes, although most methods will be applicable to any organism. One day is set aside to discuss the participants own projects, and work with that data, if available.
Target audience This course is aimed at PhD-students, post docs or other researchers interested in learning about genome assembly and genome annotation. It will be especially useful for researchers that have (or will have) data of their own and want run the assembly - and annotation - tools themselves.
