NCGAS is teaching a course in genomics, called GEMS: WORKFLOWS IN GENOMICS. GEMS is Genomics and Eco-evolution of Multi-scale Symbioses. Included in all this are short introductions to Illumina and Nanopore sequencing. I thought I would give these to you as blogs, this one on Illumina and another to come on Nanopore, and eventually one on PacBio. Note that we recently posted a blog on next generation sequencing, i.e. long read sequencing methods. That has a different flavor from what I’m doing here.
Tools to use for shotgun sequencing metagenomic data taxa annotation
Steps to plot rarefaction curves for WGS metagenomic datasets
Some interesting studies that are possible with the help of long-read technologies to study microbes.
The steps commonly taken to reconstruct genomes/metagenome-assembled genomes from shotgun sequenced metagenomes
Anvi’o is now available as pre-configured VM on Jetstream
Third generation sequencing technologies for microbiome/metagenomic studies.
