Edinburgh Genomics runs an Introduction to Variant Analysis of NGS Data in Edinburgh on Thursday 22 and Friday 23 October 2015. The workshop is aimed at researchers, postdocs and PhD students who want to learn how to do variant analysis of next generation sequencing data.
The aim of the 2-day workshop is to familiarise researchers with and to initiate them in the variant analysis of NGS data by providing lectures and practicals on analysis methodologies. In the practicals Illumina-generated sequencing data and various widely used software programs (e.g. FastQC, FastqMcf, Bowtie2, TopHat2, Picard, RSeQC, samtools, IGV, GATK, DeNovoGear, MuTect, RVtests, VEP, SnpEff, ANNOVAR) will be used. The workshop will be focused on human and in the practicals data sets from human will be used.
The workshop will be given by Marta Bleda and Ignacio Medina of the University of Cambridge.
For this workshop we will do participant selection. The application deadline is Thursday 24 September 2015 noon.
