Skip to 0 minutes and 15 seconds Welcome to the course “A Practical Guide For SARS-CoV-2 Whole-Genome Sequencing”. In this three week course, you will learn the basic concepts of viral sequencing, sequencing library preparation, and how to apply SARS-CoV-2 sequencing best practises. You will learn about different sequencing platforms and library preparation methodologies. And you will compare their benefits and limitations. You will also learn about sample and data quality control metrics and standards. Together, we will investigate high throughput approaches for sequence generation. And understand how to interpret the output of sequence data pipelines. In this course, you will also learn how to identify ways to scale up SARS-CoV-2 sequencing.
Skip to 0 minutes and 59 seconds Towards the end of the course, you will learn about sequence analysis, variant classification, and other aspects such as quality control reporting and ethical considerations. The entire course is packed with practical information, articles, and videos to help you understand the entire process of viral sequencing. This course is part of a series of courses developed by COVID-19 Genomics Global Training or COG-Train. An initiative to develop SARS-CoV-2 genomics capacity worldwide. We hope you enjoy the course and the discussions with colleagues from all around the world.
