In October 21st to 23rd inclusively, there is a course entitled
"Sequence Project Management Using the Staden Package".
Full details may be found on:
A summary follows:
The course is designed to provide an introduction to the use of the
latest version of programs produced by Rodger Staden's group for the
management of large-scale DNA sequencing projects. The course is very
practical. Participants will be guided through exercises during which
they will process a substantial set of sequence data obtained from an
ABI automatated DNA sequencers.
In the course of the three days we will cover setting up of a new
sequencing project, pre-processing data generated by automatic
sequencers, creating sequencing project databases, automatic assembly
of batches of reads into contigs, checking and editing contigs, and
use of phred-style confidence values. Checking will include
examination of the traces for conflicting readings, searches for
repeated sequences and analysis of the relative positions of readings
derived from the same template.
