The NCBI Next Generation Sequencing Online Workshop is a very basic online workshop for biologists just getting into next generation sequencing who may want to use NCBI data or tools in that analysis.
A registration link can be found here:
The videos will be released on 10/13/2015, and the hands on portion will be released 10/20/2015.
Here's a link to the announcement!
I saw the announcement directing participants to carefully read the instructions about applying for Amazon cloud grants---however, it was not clear where these instructions would be located. I am inferring that cloud storage will be needed for the hands-on exercise, and that Amazon will be offering some storage on a limited basis.
Regarding lecture 2 The FASTQ File Format
Im trying to do quality control for raw data for a genomics class, here is the fastqc report for Read1!
my questions are:
in this case should I do trimming or masking ?
if trimming, should I trim the position 14-15 and 54-55 ? I could understand the logic behind trimming the 3' end but how I can trim in the middle of the read? Im sorry if my question quite basic but Im really suffering in understanding this concept and if u guys kindly provide me with any reference to read I would highly appreciate ur kindness.
All instructions for the hands on should be on the wiki page of the github repo (https://github.com/NCBI-Hackathons/RNA_mapping/wiki ).
Please let us know if anything is not clear.
