By the end of the workshop you should have a good overview of all the possibilities BioNumerics has to offer through numerous hands-on demos and exercises. You will get an introduction in the preprocessing and analysis of various kinds of molecular typing methods, including fingerprints as well as sequence or pattern-based techniques such as MLST, VNTR (MLVA), spa typing, etc. Next to traditional typing, this workshop also covers the basic principles of BioNumerics’ NGS analysis, including de novo assembly, mapping, whole genome MLST and SNP analysis.
