Bacterial Genome de novo assembly & annotation – using Leptospira santarosai serovar Shermani as an example (in Chinese) survey image

  • Date: 2017-07-10
    10:00~12:00
  • Speaker: Dr. Ting Wen Chen (Assistant Research Fellow, Molecular Medicine Research Center, Chang Gung University)
  • Place:B1A Conference Room, IBMS
The dramatic improvement in DNA sequencing technology has basically made whole-genome sequencing for any organisms possible. However, fully resolving a complete genome sequence is still challenging even for some microbial genomes which harbor large repeated sequences in their genomes. In this talk, we’d like to introduce genome assembly strategies and demonstrate how to combine next generation sequencing and 3rd generation sequencing data to solve the whole-genome sequences of Leptospira santarosai serovar Shermani and the followed annotation methodologies.

Since the Arabidopsis genome was finished in year 2000, the information derived from intensive studies of this plant model organism has been accumulated rapidly. The Arabidopsis Information Resource (TAIR) is a database providing comprehensive and up-to-date genetic and molecular biology data of Arabidopsis on a genome-wide scale.
This workshop will demonstrate how to interpret, retrieve and analyze various data types with the use of TAIR.
1. DNA analysis: cis-element, polymorphism, DNA methylation
2. RNA analysis: splicing, expression, plant ontology, small RNA, degradome
3. Protein analysis: domain, localization, modification, protein-protein interaction
4. Function analysis: gene ontology
5. Pathway analysis: AraCyc Pathways
6. Others: seed stock, ftp download

IPA is software that helps researchers model, analyze, and understand the complex biological and chemical systems at the core of life science research. IPA has been broadly adopted by the life science research community and is cited in thousands of peer-reviewed journal articles.
IPA helps you understand complex omics data at multiple levels by integrating data from a variety of experimental platforms and providing insight into the molecular and chemical interactions, cellular phenotypes, and disease processes of your system. IPA provides insight into the causes of observed gene expression changes and into the predicted downstream biological effects of those changes.
Even if you have experimental data, you can use IPA to intelligently search the Ingenuity Knowledge Base for information on genes, proteins, chemicals, drugs, and molecular relationships to build biological models or get up to speed in a relevant area of research. IPA provides the right biological context to facilitate informed decision-making, advance research project design, and generate new testable hypotheses.

Outline:

1. Introduction and Getting Started in IPA
2. Searching and Accessing the Knowledge Base
3. Building and Editing a Pathway for Publication
4. Q & A
