Genome and Transcriptome Assembly

These tutorials cover assembly algorithms for the genomes and transcriptomes.

1. Assembly Jigsaw Puzzle

We developed this tutorial to explain genome assembly algorithms in a simple manner. In fact, rather than explaining, we expect you to discover the answer by manually solving a jigsaw puzzle. Later we show you how your solutions are related to the commonly used algorithms and their variations.

2. Short Read Assembly

This tutorial explains genome and transcriptome assembly processes for short (primarily Illumina) reads.

3. Long Read Assembly

This tutorial presents assembly and analysis algorithms for long noisy reads (Pacbio, Nanopore).

4. Kmer Magic

This tutorial covers kmer spectrum and its uses. It is a powerful tool to learn about genomes, transcriptomes and high-throughput sequencing libraries.
