Abstract Detail



What can Next Generation Fungal Genome Sequencing do for you?

Hsiang, Tom [1].

Introduction to fungal genome sequencing and assembly.

Next Generation Sequencing technology has opened up a whole way of looking at organisms. And it is now possible for a small lab to have the genome of a fungus completely sequenced, and the genes predicted for less than U.S. $1000; however, access to high performance computing facilities as well as some biocomputational skills are required. This presentation provides a basic introduction to genome sequencing and assembly technologies, including terminology (definition of commonly used terms), and the process from DNA preparation and submission, to receipt and analyses of the many gigabytes worth of data sequencing results.
