M Sept 6 Labor Day (No Class)
W Sept 8 Sequencing and Genome Assembly
Homework Assignment #1 - due next Weds - bring a copy to class
Two good reviews of next-generation sequence analysis:
Schatz et al. 2010. Assembly of large genomes using second-generation sequencing. Genome Research E-pub.
Flicek and Birney. 2009. Sense from sequence reads: methods for alignment and assembly. Nature Methods Supplement. S6-S12.
M Sept 13 Sequencing and de novo genome assembly (Assembly and Alignment Lab)
Papers that describe software we will use in lab:
Simpson et al. 2009. ABySS, a parallel assembler for short read sequence data
Rissman et al. Reordering contigs of draft genomes using the Mauve aligner. Bioinformatics. 2009 Aug 15;25(16):2071-3.
The lab exercise can be downloaded here but you must also download the data set and software from one of these sites (the same file is on both servers, and includes a copy of the lab exercise as well): Genetics875_Assembly.zip (mywebspace) or Genetics875_Assembly.zip (genome.wisc.edu)
Here are the results from ABySS assemblies with different k-mers:
W Sept 15 Other short-read sequencing applications
Levin et al. 2010. Comprehensive comparative analysis of strand-specific RNA sequencing methods. Nature Methods 7(9):709.
M Sept 20 Alignment Types (Short-read mapping Lab)
Software we'll use in lab:
The lab exercise can be downloaded here but you must also download additional files from one of two other sites (the same files are on both servers). The lab exercise is not included in the downloads, but the links are provided in the lab exercise.
(3) you will also need to download and install Mauve again: [Mauve]
These files take quite while to download, so we will also have them on at least one USB "stick" in the classroom.
