SECIM is dedicated to educating the future leaders in the field of metabolomics. We will offer a range of workshops and online resources focused on training users in the technology and analysis offered by SECIM. We will also be regularly offering one hour “brown bag” lunch topics at UF. In the future these will be videotaped for off-campus users and students. Please add your name to our distribution list to be notified about upcoming opportunities.


UF_Research_ComputingResearch Computing Training:

What: Research Computing Training
When: Thursday, October 16th at 12:50
Where: NPB, Room 2205
Topic:  Next Generation Sequencing Data Techniques: Reference-Based Mapping and de Novo Assembly

This session will focus on Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data. We will look at both reference-based mapping of reads (using Bowtie and Bowtie2) and de novo assembly of reads (using Velvet). I will also briefly highlight some of the other mapping and assembly applications available at Research Computing.

We will use both the command line and Galaxy during the demonstration. Users are encouraged to bring their laptop and follow along with some of the analyses.

If you are unable to attend in person, sessions are broadcast with Adobe Connect. Click here to connect starting at 12:40 on Thursday.
