NEXT GENERATION SEQUENCING (NGS) - BACTERIA WHOLE GENOME SEQUENCING TRAINING
CCB has organised a private NGS Training on Bacteria Whole Genome session for Dr. Sofia Bashir from National University Research Institute, Sudan commencing on 17th April 2017 to 5th May 2017. This training was led by CCB NGS specialist Dr. Lau Nyok Sean with assistance of CCB NGS team. These 19 days training covered the theoretical and hands on session using her own bacterial sample for Library Preparation, Quality Control (QC) Analysis, Sequencing, and Bioinformatics Analysis. In library preparation session, Dr. Sofia was able to learn on how to prepare her sample's DNA library for her sample, how to troubleshoot the problems encountered throughout the library preparation session. She was also taught on how to perform Qubit Quantification and Bioanalyser Analysis as quality control check up pre- and post library preparation session. As for sequencing part, Dr. Sofia is able to learn on the principle of the sequencing of different platforms, and able to closely observe on how the sequencer works. Subsequently, for bioinformatics part, she was taught by Dr. Lau on how to analyse the data. CCB are looking forward for future research collaboration with NURI soon.
