Workshop

9th RepeatExplorer Workshop on the Application of Next Generation Sequencing to Repetitive DNA Analysis

ONLINE WORKSHOP

May 25 – June 11, 2021

The workshop will focus on theoretical and practical aspects of using next generation sequencing (NGS) data for analyzing repeat composition of plant genomes. Special emphasis will be given to repeat characterization methods implemented in the RepeatExplorer pipeline, including practical training in using the pipeline. Participants are also encouraged to make short presentations of their research related to the workshop topic.

Due to the current travel restrictions, the workshop has been moved online, and its layout divided into several interactive sessions and practical tasks distributed over the period of three weeks:

May 25-31 Practical training part I [conducted individually, using the provided data and videotutorials]
May 26 Short presentations of the workshop participants [lectures, 3 hours]
May 31 Troubleshooting and discussion related to the practical training I [interactive, 2 hours]
June 1 Short presentations of the workshop participants [lectures, 3 hours]
June 2 Short presentations of the workshop participants [lectures, 3 hours]
June 2-7 Practical training part II [conducted individually, using the provided data and videotutorials]
