Applied Microbial Whole Genome Sequence Data Analysis Workshop *SOLD OUT

Saturday, September 22, 2018 | 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m
Sunday, September 23, 2018 | 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

This hands-on workshop will feature free and commercial tools with graphical user interface (either desktop or WWW) for applied microbial whole genome sequence (WGS) data analysis. Tools for genomic surveillance, comparative genomics, and bacterial genome characterization (e.g., antimicrobial resistance) will be covered. Two weeks before the event registered participants will receive an email from the organizers with detailed instructions on how to download and install tools and/or demonstration data. Participants are required to bring with them to the workshop their WiFi enabled laptop computers (minimum 4 GB RAM) with the installed software/data.

The workshop capacity is limited to a maximum of 50 participants. Places are assigned according to the ‘first come first serve’ principle.
