Abstract

Whole-genome sequencing (WGS) is used to determine the genetic composition of an organism. This fast-moving field is continually evolving through technical advancements and the development of new bioinformatic tools for analyzing genomic data; however, the basic principles and processes for defining and processing high-quality genome sequence information remain unchanged. Here, we introduce some considerations and describe some commonly used bioinformatic steps for processing raw genome sequence data to generate genome assemblies through to understanding basic population genomics.
