Default Genome Assembly and Analysis Workshop

Announcing a New UC Davis Bioinformatics Workshop!

December 12-14, 2016

Genome Assembly and Analysis [Pac Bio and 10x Genomics]

New long (Pacific Biosciences) and linked (10x Genomics) read technologies make 'high' quality genome assemblies affordable and computationally tractable. This workshop will focus on project design, library and sequencing technologies, genome assembly, and evaluation as well as comparative genomics.

Topics will include:
  • Technology overview for Pacific Biosciences and 10x Genomics and their differences
  • Project design and sample preparation for both Pacific Biosciences and 10x Genomics
  • Estimating needed sequencing and associated costs
  • QA/QC of raw data
  • Genome assembly using Falcon for Pacific Biosciences and Supernova for 10x genomics
  • Genome statistics and evaluating assemblies
  • Discussion on haplotyping genome (falcon-unzip)
  • Discussion on comparative genomics

Who Should Attend
Anyone who is considering doing a eukaryotic genome assembly project. Bacterial genome assemblies, or metagenomics, will be discussed in a later workshop. Prior workshop participants have included faculty, post docs, grad students, staff, and industry researchers.
The format will be approximately half lecture and half hands-on. The hands-on portion of the workshop will exclusively involve command-line interaction, therefore command-line experience is a must to fully participate. If you are not familiar with the command line but would like to attend, listen, and learn that is OK, but we will be unable to train people how to use the command-line during this short workshop.

Participants will need to bring their own laptops in order to access a remote server for the hands-on portion of the workshop.

Registration Info
For more information, and to register, click on the link above or go to All registration is “first-come, first-served”. There is no application process. Anyone is welcome to attend.
The registration fee is $300 for UC and UC affiliates, $450 for other academic or non-profit participants and $600 for other participants. We accept credit cards, as well as UC Davis recharge accounts, for payment. Registration fees include light breakfast, lunch, and snacks, but do not include dinner, lodging or parking fees.
