The first in a series of CRUK Centre and CCB bioinformatics workshops will focus on;

Analysis of human DNA sequencing data

Run by Dr Boris Noyvert, CRUK Centre Bioinformatician

Workshops on RNA-seq and ChIP-seq data analysis coming soon.

The workshop is limited to 25 participants. 

A preliminary outline for the first workshop:

1. Introduction to DNA sequencing.
2. Presentation by Celina Whalley and Claire Bryer from the sequencing facility.
3. DNA-seq analysis steps and data formats.
4. Browsing mapped sequencing data using IGV: germline and somatic mutations.
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 is expected for the hands-on part of the workshop.
If you don’t have any command line experience and are interested to participate in the hands-on part of our workshop you are strongly advised to attend the “Introduction to Linux” course on Wednesday 24th October, 9.30-12.30, run by the BEAR team.
If you are not able to attend the linux course please go through the course notes and exercises prior to attending the workshop;
