Course
Whole Genome Sequencing-Bioinformatics only
International Food Safety Training Laboratory

Course Description

IFSTL in collaboration with FDA/CFSAN will hold a hands-on training in Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS). This course will be conducted by FDA bioinformaticists and is designed for those who already have laboratory experience in WGS and wish to learn more about data analysis/processing.

Participants will explore how to generate reads and assemble genomes, understand FDA SNP Pipeline, and identify clusters of food borne pathogens using NCBI Genome Workbench.

Note: If you have any other suggestions for bioinformatics topics, feel free to include them in the "special needs" portion of the registration or email awinslow@umd.edu.
