The ability to conduct a sequencing run on its own very small instrument (the size of a hand) like the minION is very tempting for each lab researcher. During this course, we will show how to prepare, run and analyse a DNA sample using a minION. Days description of the preliminary program: 1-am General Intro+DNA library prep (organisers: need a lab with material freezer and centrifuge) 1-pm running minION (organisers: overnight need a computer connected to minION) 2-am data QC and cleaning (FastQC, or other tools) 2-pm genome assembly (Canu or other tools) and polishing 3-am analysis & annotation (Prokka and other tools) 3-pm comparison with PacBio (MAUVE and other tools) The participants will learn the tips and tricks required to prepare their DNA samples, run the sequencer and analyse the data with basic methods. The pitfalls to avoid will also be discussed.
