Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)

An up-to-date overview of Next Generation Sequencing based characterization of bacterial pathogens for outbreak investigation and surveillance.

In a hands-on approach, we will train you in the use of next generation sequencing (NGS) and NGS data analysis (Illumina  and and Oxford Nanopore sequencing technologies, assembly, quality control, core genome analysis, strain comparison and drawing phylogenetic trees, resistance genes, virulence genes, plasmids, classical MLST).

Target audience

  • Staff members of reference laboratories
  • Scientists interested in next generation sequencing who want to get an up-to-date overview of the theoretical and practical use of next generation sequencing typing methods and comparative genomics for epidemiological pathogen studies.
