Bootcamp: Introduction to Next Generation Sequence Analysis with Galaxy, December 10, 2013

Posted by & filed under Training.

Next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies allow laboratories to do genome-wide research that was previously only possible at large genome centers. The Galaxy platform is a web-based front-end that can run almost any bioinformatics tool, and is completely open-source and freely available. During the morning session of this bootcamp, we will explore key principles of major sequencing technologies (Illumina,… Read more »

Bootcamp: Next Generation Sequence Alignment and Variant Discovery, December 11, 2013

Posted by & filed under Training.

The low cost and high throughput of next generation sequencing provides an unprecedented opportunity to assay variability within the genomes of individuals and populations. Using the Galaxy platform, we will explore the new generation of aligners built specifically for the demands of high throughput sequences, and walk through the GATK Best Practices pipeline for SNP… Read more »

Bootcamp: Genome Assembly using Next Generation Sequence Data, December 12, 2013

Posted by & filed under Training.

The genome assembly problem changed dramatically with the advent of next generation technologies, and has continued to evolve along with the so-called “third-generation:” PacBio’s single molecule, real-time sequencing. Illumina and PacBio have become the dominant technologies with which to sequence and assemble novel genomes, due to their complementary strengths and weaknesses. In this bootcamp, we… Read more »

The 2013 RNA-Seq Workshop: From Pipette to P-value! (Sept 9-11, 2013)

Posted by & filed under Training.

This exciting RNA-Seq Workshop will include both lab bench and bioinformatics instruction in parallel tracks, both aimed at those seeking more experience with RNA-Seq experiments. Workshop attendees may register for either the “Bench” or “Computer” focused track, but both tracks will involve analysis of RNA-Seq data. Bench track attendees will spend two half-days working at… Read more »
