Robs manual for the computational genomics and bioinformatics class
About this manual
Rob, Liz Dinsdale, Tom Jeffries, Bruno Gomez-Gil, Jim Mitchell, and several other colleagues and friends have been teaching genomics and metagenomics for a long time. They have written this manual over the course of several years, and in a variety of formats. Rob moved it to markdown using GitHub in Fall 2018 as part of his computational genomics class.

Companion videos that accompany this class are available on You Tube on Rob’s YouTube Playlist.

We are using this content in a variety of workshops
Solutions are still not shown, but you can work through some of these
- NCBI EDirect is to familiarize yourself with NCBI EDirect.
- Genomics Assignment is to analyze complete genomes from Klebsiella.
- Metagenomics Assignment is to analyze some metagenomics data and describe the organisms that you find there.
We have several different datasets available for you to use to try the course work out. There are both 16S and random metagenomes, and links to genomics data.
Note: The PDFs are automatically created from the markdown, and loose some of the images and links. You should probably use the HTML version most of the time.
