Syllabus

This big data challenge will cover the entire program. After a brief introduction to the steps required to build a genome assembler, we will let you take steps on your own to start working with real data taken from a sequencing machine and see if you can design genome assembly software that can compete with popular software used in hundreds of sequencing labs around the world every day.

Prerequisite

Basic knowledge of:

  • at least one programming language: loops, arrays, stacks, recursion.
  • mathematics: proof by induction, proof by contradiction.
