Default Direction! I could use some!

Hello SEQanswers!

Where should a guy go to get practice for learning de novo genome assembly?

Thanks for any help!

You could likely pick something small like E. coli from here:

See if there publicly available reads similar to what you are expecting to sequence and assemble them. Since these genomes are already finished you can always compare the contiguity and N50 metrics of your assembled draft vs the published genome.
