Tutorial Details: Roche/454 Sequence Data Assembly, Mapping, and Metagenomics Studies

Date: Thursday, July 15, 2010, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm
Location: Room 138 Cargill Building
Instructor(s): Zheng Jin Tu, MSI

Roche/454 Genome Sequencer (GS) can generate one million sequencing readings with an average reading at about 400 nucleotides long within a single run. This makes GS a good choice for genome sequencing, re-sequencing, and genetic variation analysis.

This hands-on tutorial will teach users how to use GS De Novo Assembler and Mapper for de novo genome assembly and mapping. Then we will walk through 16s rRNA-based metagenomics data analysis with Mothur as the main program.
