Unicycler assembly of SARS-CoV-2 genome with preprocessing to remove human genome reads
Below are video tutorials for this GTN material, created for various (past) events.
Tutorial Video (February 2021)
This tutorial guides you through the preprocessing of sequencing data of bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) samples obtained from early COVID-19 patients in China. Since such samples are expected to be contaminated signficantly with human sequenced reads, the goal is to enrich the data for SARS-CoV-2 reads by identifying and discarding reads of human origin before trying to assemble the viral genome sequence.
