Organizer: University of Cambridge

Host institution: University of Cambridge Bioinformatics Training

Start: Tuesday, 08 June 2021 @ 08:00

End: Wednesday, 09 June 2021 @ 11:30

Venue: Craik-Marshall Building

City: Cambridge

Country: United Kingdom

Postcode: CB2 3AR

Scientific topic: Bioinformatics

Target audience:
  • Biologists
  • wet-lab scientists
  • bioinformatics and other life scientists planning to work with next-generation sequencing data.
  • Graduate students
  • Postdocs and Staff members from the University of Cambridge
  • Institutions and other external Institutions or individuals
Description:

PLEASE NOTE The Bioinformatics Team are presently teaching as many courses live online. We aim to simulate the classroom experience as closely as possible, with opportunities for one-to-one discussion with tutors and a focus on interactivity throughout.

Day 1 will introduce you to next generation sequencing technologies (NGS) and how they work, providers, common bioinformatics workflows, standardised file types, quality control. This session will include an introduction to Galaxy. Galaxy is an open, web-based platform for data-intensive life science research that enables non-bioinformaticians to create, run, tune, and share their own bioinformatic analyses.

Day 2 will be hands-on practicals on using Galaxy to explore sequencing quality control, before and after removal of low quality samples. This forms the core of all NGS analyses and this day will conclude with how this data pipes into gene expression studies, variant calling and genome assemblies.

Please note that if you are not eligible for a University of Cambridge Raven account you will need to book or register your interest by linking here.''
