Upcoming Workshop – A Beginner’s Guide to NGS Data Analysis

9th – 13th March 2015

Organization: ecSeq Bioinformatics
Type: Workshop
Venue: iad Pc-Pool
Location: Rosa-Luxemburg-Straße 23, Leipzig, Germany
Website: A Beginner’s Guide to NGS Data Analysis
Area – Life Sciences
Specialty – Bioinformatics
Subject – Bioinformatics

The purpose of this workshop is to get a deeper understanding in Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) with a special focus on bioinformatics issues. Additionally, all workshop participants should be enabled to perform important tasks of NGS data analysis tasks themselves.

The first workshop module is an introduction to data analysis using Linux, assuring that all participants are able to follow the practical parts. The second module dicusses advantages and disadvantages of current sequencing technologies and their implications on data analysis. The most important NGS file formats (fastq, sam/bam, bigWig, etc.) are introduced and one proceeds with first hands-on analyses (QC, mapping, visualization). You will learn how to read and interprete QC plots, clip adapter sequences and/or trim bad quality read ends, get bioinformatics backgrounds about the read mapping and understand its problems (dynamic programming, alignment visualization, NGS mapping heuristics, etc.), perform your own mapping statistics and visualize your data in different ways (IGV, UCSC, etc.). The last two modules adress two specific applications of NGS: RNA-seq of model organisms and RNA-seq of non-model organisms.
