A highly intereactive course where participants will learn a lot about sequence-based typing methods. GTPB courses are designed to give maximum transfer of skills and user independence. Course fee = Euro 320. Local subsistence costs are low.
This training course is directed for the data analysis of sequence based typing methods, from the raw-data to the identification of a strain type by several typing methodologies, and the use of analysis algorithms to create groups of related strains. It will span from Single Locus Sequence Typing methods, such as spa typing or emm typing, to the now established MultiLocus Sequence Typing (MLST) and Multilocus Variable Number of Tandem Repeats Analysis (MLVA) methodologies. The course will also cover methods that apply to whole genome sequence data, and show how NGS data can be analyzed and made sense of, in this context.
