PATRIC/RAST Tutorial Workshop, July 26-28, 2016

The PATRIC/RAST teams will be offering a tutorial on July 26-28, 2016 at Argonne National Laboratory in the suburbs of Chicago, IL. The workshop will run for three days with the third day optional and devoted solely to participants working on their own problems with help from the PATRIC/RAST team members. The tutorial will show participants how to assemble a genome from reads, annotate that genome, and then compare that genome to the public genomes available in PATRIC using a suite of comparative analysis tools.  In addition, participants will be able to construct a metabolic model for their genome, load and analyze RNA-Seq data, and identify and annotate sequence variation using PATRIC’s new variation analysis service.

The workshop will be limited to 20 people on a first-come, first-served basis. While there is no fee for the workshop, participants are responsible for their own travel expenses. If you wish to participate, we encourage you to respond quickly to India Gordon at
