Summer school in Bioinformatics: INTRODUCTION TO NGS data analysis
When: 7-11 September 2020
Where: Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, this course will be held online
Instructors: Daniel A. Pass, PhD (Cardiff University, UK) and Christoph Hanh, PhD (University of Graz, Austria)
This course will introduce participants into the field of Next Generation Sequencing biology, understanding both the concepts and handling of the data. We will cover a broad range of software and analyses from quality assessment of sequencing runs, through assembling and annotating small genomes, RNAseq and differential gene expression, and phylogenomics with NGS data. Primarily focussed with Illumina data, we will also look at the different requirements and opportunities when utilising long read data (Nanopore/PacBio). This course will be accompanied with sessions on the use of the Linux command line, and docker which is the preferred platform for most bioinformatic analyseis, as well as software containers, through Docker or Singularity, with particular focus on best practices for reproducibility.
