Presenter: Dr Anna Syme, Research Scientist, Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria
It is becoming increasingly practical to use large genomic data sets to answer research questions in plant biology, but it can be difficult to know where to start. In this webinar, we will see a demonstration of a genome assembly, using chloroplast sequencing data and the Galaxy Australia web platform. After the webinar, participants can try out the workflows on the same or other data, using the free Galaxy platform and its tools. This is a small-scale demonstration but will provide a general introduction on how to use these tools in this setting.
Dr Anna Syme is a Research Scientist at the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, working on the Bioplatforms Australia project: Genomics for Australian Plants, a national collaboration to develop genomic resources for researchers. She works mainly on genome assembly and develops bioinformatics training.
