From the Inbox: NGS data anaysis

Where : University of Leicester, UK
What: Next Generation Sequencing Data analysis.
When: 7th-9th January 2015

A few places are still remaining and are available for external applicants. Places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

Next Generation Sequencing methods are becoming ubiquitous in all areas of biology. This three day workshop aims to enable wet-lab biologists to understand and implement basic pipelines for analysis of NGS data. Topics covered will include:

*         An overview of NGS technology
*         A brief introduction to library preparation
*         Common file formats
*         Quality Control
*         Genome Assembly
*         Mapping
*         Variant Calling

The workshop will consist of a mixture of short talks and practical work. Participants are required to have some basic knowledge of Unix to enable them to follow the practical work.
