December 2 Webinar: Using the new Read assembly and Annotation Pipeline Tool (RAPT) to assemble and annotate microbial genomes

Join us December 2 to learn how to use the Read assembly and Annotation Pipeline Tool (RAPT). With RAPT, you can assemble and annotate a microbial genome right out of the sequencing machine! Provide the short genomic reads or an SRA run on input, and get back the sequence annotated with coding and protein coding … Continue reading December 2 Webinar: Using the new Read assembly and Annotation Pipeline Tool (RAPT) to assemble and annotate microbial genomes
