Long-read sequencing analysis in the QIAGEN CLC Genomics Workbench

March 24, 2022
This tutorial is an introduction to working with the tools in the Long Read Support (beta) plugin. The Long Read Support (beta) plugin is a collection of tools developed for working with long, error-prone reads such as those produced by the single-molecule sequencing technologies of Pacific Biosciences or Oxford Nanopore Technologies.

Participants will take away how to:

• Download Plugin for Long read support
• Import data required for the analysis
• De novo assembly of a microbial sized genome using long, error-prone reads
• Improve a de novo assembly from long reads by polishing with short, high-quality reads
• Map long reads to a reference and visualizing an assembly
• Correct raw long reads for further analysis
