Advanced Whole Genome Sequence Analysis for Microbial Diagnostics

Do you already have a good understanding of WGS and how to analyse the data using online web-services or software with a graphical user interface? Do you want to take your analyses to the next level for optimal flexibility, control, speed, and autonomy? During this workshop we will mainly be working commandline in a Linux environment. No prior experience working commandline is necessary. The workshop spans 2 full days (9:00-17:00) and includes the following:

    • Initialising and accessing a personal Linux environment via Amazon Cloud
    • Installing/running software in a Linux environment (including repositories and Docker)
    • Generating small bash-scripts to run multiple methods in a pipeline or analyse batches of files
    • Checking the quality of raw reads with FastQC
    • Trimming of raw reads with Cutadapt
    • Performing assembly of draft genomes using SPAdes and evaluate the quality of the draft genomes
    • Mapping of reads to draft or reference genomes using BWA to calculate depth of coverage, identify snps and contaminating reads
    • Running the methods from Center for Genomic Epidemiology commandline with updated or customised databases
    • Generating phylogenetic trees commandline and visualising the results

Organiser and main teacher: Mette Voldby Larsen
