Training in Variant Analysis

August 20-23,2019


Where?

National Institutes of Health

9000 Rockville Pike

Building 60, Room 162

Bethesda, MD 20892, USA


Objectives

Participants will use popular open source tools and techniques necessary for analysing variants starting from raw data quality control. Apart from the regular analysis like alignment, variant calling and annotation, this training will walk through participants in several advanced variant analysis methods and techniques.

Background

Next generation sequencing technologies have made genotyping a day to day research and diagnostic tool. Genotyping has come all the way from bench-to-bedside. Genetic variants are being used in personalized medicine to identify susceptibility genes, common disease variants and mutations relevant for diagnosis and therapy.

  • Variant calling best practices
  • Indels, structural and copy-number variation
  • Cohort and population scale analysis
  • Recombination, linkage, LOH, haplotype, allelic imbalance
  • Variant annotation and association analysis
  • Co-variation, causal variation, network analysis
