The "Identifying and publishing HTS/Sanger DNA sequence datasets" course will take place in Copenhagen, Denmark on 14-15 January 2019.
Sanger sequencing and next generation sequencing are becoming widespread mycology tools, yet many researchers, in particular students, are stuck at the “sequences at the hard drive” stage. This hands-on practical NEFOM course will bring you the necessary skills on sequence identification of fungi using UNITE, and to publish the resulting data as authored, DOI-citable datasets through GBIF.org.
You will learn:
1. Identification of HTS and Sanger DNA sequence datasets of fungi using UNITE Species Hypotheses database.
2. Publishing the sequence identification results together with sample data as occurrence or sampling event datasets at GBIF.org.
