De novo genome assembly – Torsten Seemann

How do we generate the genome sequence of our favourite organism? In this talk I will introduce the problem of de novo genome assembly; describe the strategies and caveats of the way the problem is tackled; and outline ways to assess the results. The related problems of transcriptome and metagenome assembly, and how the latest technologies are transforming de novo assembly, will also be touched upon.
