The workshop will focus on theoretical and practical aspects of using next generation sequencing (NGS) data for analyzing repeat composition of plant genomes. Special emphasis will be given to repeat characterization methods implemented in the RepeatExplorer pipeline, including practical training in using the pipeline. The workshop should also serve as a platform for exchange of ideas and latest results with ample time dedicated to open discussions. Participants are encouraged to make short presentations of their research related to the workshop topic and/or bring their own data for practical training.

The workshop is organized by the Laboratory of Molecular Cytogenetics of the Biology Centre AS CR. It will take place at the Academy of Sciences / University campus in Ceske Budejovice, Czech Republic. The meeting programme will include theoretical lectures and research reports combined with hands-on training (no programming skills required). In case of any questions or comments please contact Jiri Macas.
