Pangenome Assembly and Assessment using Minigraph and Bandage¶
This session is part of Biodiversity Genomics Academy 2023
Zachary Cohen, Insect Cotton Control and Disease Research Unit. USDA-ARS, College Station, TX, USA
Welcome to this data-to-figure workshop on pangenome assembly using minigraph and bandage! In this session you will first get a brief background on the utility of pangenomes, followed by a hands-on tutorial where you will:
- construct a pangenome using minigraph and primate mitochondrial genomes
- visualize and annotate using bandage
- identify lineage specific differences
By the end of this session, you will have all of the tools necessary to curate your genome assemblies into a functional and dynamic reference graph.
To get the most out of this workshop, participants will have downloaded the requisite programs: minigraph, bandage, as well as the data fasta file of mitochondrial gene transcripts. Experience with GUI point-n-click programs, access and familiarity with terminal and bash command line programming
grep, cd, ls ...etc.
