This chapter walks through the process of training a test application, using an interactive training scenario to provide insight into genome metric comparisons, and scoring results. The process of genome selection, strand building, genome compare testing, metric selection, metric scoring, and reinforcement learning are outlined at a high level. This chapter does not provide a complete working application as source code, but instead explores low-level details using VGM command line tools to develop intuition about VGM internals.

The key section in this chapter for understanding metrics and scoring for the genome ...
