Genome Assembly Workshop 2020

Event Date

Multi-Purpose Room at the UC Davis Student Community Center

June 29, 2020, 9 a.m. - July 2, 2020, 5 p.m.

Organizer - Bioinformatics Core

Contact - UC Davis Bioinformatics Core,

Genome Assembly is currently in a renaissance, with new technologies coming together to complement each other, producing high-quality reference grade assemblies. This workshop will focus on project design, library and sequencing technologies, genome assembly and data type integration process, and evaluation in a practical and informative setting.

The format will be approximately half lecture and half hands-on. The hands-on portion of the workshop will  involve command-line interaction with some R, therefore prior command-line and R 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 you in how to use the command-line and R during this workshop.

This workshop will be held in Davis and will run from 9:00am to 5:00pm each day and include light breakfast, lunch, and snacks.

Participants must bring their own laptops to use, which should have a recent version of R, Rstudio, and Java installed, and an application that allows them to ssh into a server (e.g. Bash for Windows, or Terminal for Apple), as well as the ability to connect to the internet via wifi.

The registration fee is $1,000 for UC students, postdocs, staff and faculty, $1,200 for Non-UC academic or non-profit participants and $1,700 for other participants. Late registrations (less than one month prior to the start of the event) are subject to a 20% fee increase. 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.
