Overview 

Whole genome sequencing has largely been used as a tool, not only in research fields but also in real-life applications. In this workshop, basic data analytics of bacterial whole genome sequencing is demonstrated through comprehensive lectures, case studies and hands-on tutorials. This is a technical workshop covering main concepts and ideas, starting from experimental design, data acquisition, QC and analysis, to results interpretation, visualization and communication.

Who should attend 

This workshop welcomes participants who are interested in learning the bioinformatics of WGS and bacterial genome analysis, especially researchers with WGS data or will eventually need to handle WGS-related projects.
