Complex plant genomes impose high demands on analytical software and the knowledge of biologists to interpret these results. The service centre GCBN offers CATS (Crop Analysis Tool Suite), which provides various tools for sequence analysis. In this second of three courses the main focus is on the operation of repeat analysis and masking with the tools Kmasker plants (mathematically defined repeats) and MISA-Web (microsatellites). There will be two short presentations on the two topics and two online live demonstrations with examples. Together the whole training course will last about 90 minutes.
The primary objective of this training course is to introduce tools for sequence analysis for crops. The theoretical basics as well as some examples will be shown by using online demonstrations, which will enable the participants to design and perform their own analyses.
The training course is designed for early career scientists such as PhD students and postdocs, but also for experienced scientists who want to learn more about the repeat analysis and masking of sequence data for complex plant genomes.
