This course is a computer laboratory course intended to give students technical and practical experience in analyzing sequencing data. We will focus on bacterial genomes from recently isolated bacteria, so there is a possibility of discovery of new microbial diversity. Collaborative learning will be encouraged, but students will work individually to assemble, annotate and analyze one de novo bacterial genome. This course fulfills the Microbiology Major requirement as a Major Laboratory Elective.
