Module Overview

While sequencing has historically been carried out to determine the sequence of genes and genomes, modern high-throughput methods have extended its reach such that it is core to many common experimental methods i.e. transcriptomics, analysis of DNA interactions, genome conformation etc. This module introduces the developement of modern sequencing technology, the capabilities of different instrument and library types, data formats, quality assessment and read trimming.
