Tutorial Details: Introduction to 454 Life Sciences' Newble Assembler and Whole Genome Mapping Software

Date: Thursday, February 1, 2007, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm
Location: Room 138 Cargill Building
Instructor(s): Zheng Jin Tu, MSI

The Genome Sequencer 20 (GS20) from the 454 Life Sciences Company is a high-throughput instrument for rapid and comprehensible nucleotide sequencing. The targeted application is the sequencing of whole genomes and ultra-deep sequencing of target genes. The Rig program contains multiple applications for GS20 sequence data analysis including assembly and mapping.

This tutorial will introduce the principle of 454 Life Sciences’ sequencing technology, data preparation, and data analysis, especially in sequence assembly and mapping
