Nanopore Sequencing-based Study of Microorganisms
This is a block (pro)seminar covering topics related to nanopore sequencing-based studies of microorganisms. This emerging sequencing technology holds great promise for the fast and cost-effective analysis of microorganisms. However, several challenges need to be overcome. In this pro/seminar, we will be covering (mostly) the computational side of challenges, including base calling, detection of base-modifications, error-correction, and assembly.
Tutor: Cedric Laczny

* If you would like to get feedback about your slides, e.g. to improve your presentation before the talk, send your slides to the tutor before the feedback deadline. We strongly encourage you to take this opportunity. Before sending in the slides, check out our presentations guidelines (presentation guidelines, presentation guidelines checklist). Please note: The more complete the submitted presentation the more helpful the feedback can be. Please try to avoid submitting half-finished slides.
Hint Your slides will make up a substantial part of the final grade. Reading and paying attention to the provided presentation guidelines (see above) will help you to get an impression of which aspects are relevant for the evaluation. Disregarding many of the points listed in the guidelines may negatively affect your grade.
