NGS analysis on the command line

Registration is open for the course, “NGS analysis on the command line,” scheduled for March 24-27, 2020. Postponed until September 2020.

Coorganizers: Valerie Cognat & Todd Blevins

This hands-on workshop teaches bioinformatics approaches for analyzing Illumina sequencing data. IBMP students, staff and researchers of all categories are welcome. Our goal is to introduce the basic skills you need to make the most of your next-generation sequencing (NGS) data.

Based on concrete, biological examples we will teach:

  • Basic info about Illumina/NGS sequencing
  • Introduction to the Unix command line and R
  • NGS data quality control
  • Mapping reads to reference genomes
  • small RNA-seq profiling
  • RNA-seq / differential gene expression analysis

Feedback from past attendees indicated that more training on Unix and R would be helpful, so this will be covered during the first 1.5 days (Tuesday + Wednesday), followed by NGS data analyses for 2 days (Thursday + Friday).

We can accommodate 12 participants this session. The workshop does not assume prior knowledge of bioinformatics, the Unix command line or genomic technologies.
