The next CRUK Centre and CCB bioinformatics workshop will focus on;

 Analysis of Human DNA Sequencing Data

Run by Dr Boris Noyvert, CRUK Centre Bioinformatician

The workshop is limited to 25 participants. 

A preliminary outline for the workshop:
1. Introduction to DNA sequencing.
2. DNA-seq analysis steps and data formats.
3. Browsing mapped sequencing data using IGV: germline and somatic mutations.
4. A brief practical introduction to 100,000 genomes project data.
5. Hands-on data processing: alignment, variant calling, variant annotation and filtering using linux command line tools.

Laptops will be provided by the CCB.

Prerequisite - Familiarity with Linux command line.
Familiarity with linux command line is expected for the hands-on part of the workshop. If you don’t have any command line experience you are strongly advised to take the “Introduction to Linux” course run by the BEAR team. The course is now available on Canvas:  https://canvas.bham.ac.uk/enroll/6MPPJW
