This webinar will introduce users to the tools available for short reads (Illumina) as well as long reads (Oxford Nanopore, Pac Bio) de novo assembly in CLC Genomics Workbench. It will also go over other useful functionalities such as BLAST and genome finishing.
Participants will learn the following:
o Download and install needed plugins.
o Import data required for the analysis.
o Run the de novo assembly workflow.
o For long reads, improve a de novo assembly by polishing with short, high-quality reads.
o Map reads to a reference and visualize an assembly.
o For long reads, correct raw long reads for further analysis.
o Use BLAST to investigate the contigs.
o Analyze and assemble contigs through Genome Finishing tools.
