  • 6th de.NBI Genomics training course

    4 - 6 May 2020

    Gießen, Germany

    6th de.NBI Genomics training course https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/6th-de-nbi-genomics-training-course Educators: Alexander Goesmann, Sven Griep, Oliver Rupp, Tobias Zimmermann, Oliver Schwengers, Andreas Hoek, Jochen Blom, Sebastian Jaenicke (BiGi) Date: 04.-06.05.2020 Location: Heinrich-Buff-Ring 58, Justus-Liebig-Universität, Gießen, Seminar Rm. 0024a Content: The first day will introduce software tools for the quality control of short read data. For conducting basic sequence read processing steps we will use our local Galaxy server. In the last session we will explain the basic approaches for genome assembly and run various genome assemblers: - Introduction to quality control - Automatic trimming of sequencing reads - The basics of genome assembly On the second day we will take a closer look at the genome assembly results. Afterwards, we provide a comprehensive introduction to microbial genome annotation. Available tools and algorithms for the different genome analysis and annotation steps will be explained and used within Galaxy. The GenDB genome annotation pipeline will be presented as well as a new stand-alone high-throughput genome analyses pipeline (ASA3P) that can be used to process thousands of genomes on a single day: - The basic principles of region and function annotation - Genome annotation tools and pipelines in Galaxy - Manual and distributed genome annotation using GenDB - Introduction to the ASA3P software The third day will give an introduction into comparative genomics with a focus on differential gene content analysis using the EDGAR platform. The use of the BLAST score ratio values (SRVs) to measure the similarity between coding sequences and to assess orthology will be introduced. All features of EDGAR will be introduced in detail: - Genomic subset calculations (core-genome, pan-genome, singleton genes) - Core-genome-based phylogenetic analyses - Sequence based phylogeny - ANI, AAI - Statistical analyses (core/pan/singleton development plots) - The public EDGAR database Agenda: Day 1: Quality control & genome assembly 13:00 – 13:15 Welcome & introduction (Alexander Goesmann) 13:15 – 13:30 Transfer of data sets 13:30 – 15:00 Read quality control & trimming incl. hands-on session (Sven Griep, Oliver Rupp) 15:00 – 15:30 Coffee Break 15:30 – 17:00 Introduction to genome assembly incl. hands-on session (Sven Griep, Oliver Rupp) Day 2: Microbial Genome Annotation 9:00 – 10:30 Introduction to microbial genome annotation (Alexander Goesmann) 10:30 – 11:00 Coffee Break 11:00 – 12:30 Genome annotation with Galaxy & GenDB hands-on session (Sven Griep, Oliver Rupp, Tobias Zimmermann) 12:30 – 13:30 Lunch 13:30 – 14:30 Introduction to ASA3P (Oliver Schwengers) 14:30 – 15:00 Coffee Break 15:00 – 17:00 ASA3P practical session (Oliver Schwengers, Andreas Hoek) 17:30 Optional: Tour to Gleiberg castle Day 3: Comparative Genomics 9:00 – 10:30 EDGAR (Jochen Blom) 10:30 – 11:00 Coffee Break 11:00 – 12:00 EDGAR hands-on (Jochen Blom, Sebastian Jaenicke) 12:00 – 12:30 Course evaluation & closing remarks (all hands) During the afternoon of the last day participants are invited to discuss open questions or individual projects or data sets with the course experts. Learning goals: On all three days the program includes extensive hands-on training to allow participants to get familiar with the presented software. Participants can bring their own datasets that fit the topics of the workshop. The data can be analyzed in the hands-on sessions. Prerequisites: None Keywords: Quality control, genome assembly, Microbial Genome Annotation, Comparative Genomics Tools: Galaxy, GenDB, ASA3P, EDGAR 2020-05-04 09:00:00 UTC 2020-05-06 17:00:00 UTC de.NBI Gießen, Gießen, Germany Gießen Gießen Gießen Germany [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
  • 9th RepeatExplorer Workshop on the Application of Next Generation Sequencing to Repetitive DNA Analysis

    26 - 29 May 2020

    České Budějovice, Czechia

    9th RepeatExplorer Workshop on the Application of Next Generation Sequencing to Repetitive DNA Analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/7th-repeatexplorer-workshop-on-the-application-of-next-generation-sequencing-to-repetitive-dna-analysis The workshop will focus on theoretical and practical aspects of using next generation sequencing (NGS) data for analyzing repeat composition of plant genomes. Special emphasis will be given to repeat characterization methods implemented in the RepeatExplorer pipeline, including practical training in using the pipeline. The workshop should also serve as a platform for exchange of ideas and latest results with ample time dedicated to open discussions. Participants are encouraged to make short presentations of their research related to the workshop topic and/or bring their own data for practical training. The workshop is organized by the Laboratory of Molecular Cytogenetics of the Biology Centre AS CR. It will take place at the Academy of Sciences / University campus in Ceske Budejovice, Czech Republic. The meeting programme will include theoretical lectures and research reports combined with hands-on training (no programming skills required). Registration if open till 5th May. In case of any questions or comments please contact Jiri Macas. 2020-05-26 09:00:00 UTC 2020-05-29 00:00:00 UTC Institute of Plant Molecular Biology, České Budějovice, Czech Republic Branišovská 1160/31, 31, Branišovská, České Budějovice, Czechia Branišovská 1160/31, 31, Branišovská České Budějovice České Budějovice Czechia [] Jiri Macas ELIXIR: The Czech Republic Node PhD StudentspostdocsResearchers workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served []
