  • Variant Analysis with GATK

    Elixir node event
    Variant Analysis with GATK https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/variant-analysis-with-gatk-3624e45d-cd74-4297-bc4c-d40298e39632 This workshop will focus on the core steps involved in calling variants with the [Broad’s Genome Analysis Toolkit](https://www.broadinstitute.org/gatk/), using the “Best Practices” developed by the GATK team. You will learn why each step is essential to the variant discovery process, what are the operations performed on the data at each step, and how to use the GATK tools to get the most accurate and reliable results out of your dataset. In the course of this workshop, we highlight key functionalities such as the GVCF workflow for joint variant discovery in cohorts, RNAseq­ specific processing, and somatic variant discovery using MuTect2. We also preview capabilities of the upcoming GATK version 4, including a new workflow for CNV discovery. The workshop is composed of one day of lectures (including many opportunities for Q&A) and one day of hands­on training. On the first day, we explain the rationale, theory and application of our Best Practices for Variant Discovery in high­-throughput sequencing data. On the second day, we walk attendees through hands­on exercises that teach how to manipulate the standard data formats involved in variant discovery and how to apply GATK tools appropriately to various use cases and data types. In the course of these exercises, we demonstrate useful tips and tricks for interacting with GATK, dealing with problems, and using third­party tools such as Samtools, IGV and RStudio. Please note that this workshop is focused on human data analysis. The majority of the materials presented does apply equally to non ­human data, and we will address some questions regarding adaptations that are needed for analysis of non­ human data, but we will not go into much detail on those points. The timetable can be found [here](http://bioinfotraining.bio.cam.ac.uk/postgraduate/specialized/gatk).

  • Interpreting the clinical genome with DECIPHER

    8 July 2016

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Interpreting the clinical genome with DECIPHER https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/interpreting-the-clinical-genome-with-decipher [DECIPHER](https://decipher.sanger.ac.uk/) is a collaborative data sharing and interpretation platform that enables the secure upload, analysis and subsequent sharing of anonymised phenotype-linked patient variant data in rare genetic disorders. DECIPHER is a worldwide user community of over 250 clinical genetics centres and research groups from over 40 countries that utilise the built-in tools for aiding the interpretation of variants as well as to discover other patients that share similar phenotype and genomic findings. DECIPHER facilitates collaboration and exchange of information between a global community of clinical centers and researchers leading thereby accelerating discovery and diagnosis. Access to consented anonymised records is free to all users. User accounts are provided to bona-fide clinicians and lab scientists to enable deposition and sharing of anonymised patient data. The purpose of this half-day workshop is to acquaint participants with the DECIPHER website and database and introduce the various built-in tools for visualisation and interpretation of phenotype-linked genomic variation in anonymised consented patient data. It is hoped that by the end of this workshop, users will be able to carry out effective searches of data, use the built-in genome browser to visualise variation in context of other pathogenic and reference data sources, find other patients with similar variants and shared phenotypes, and identify most likely causes of phenotypic presentation by gene prioritisation.

  • Variant Discovery with GATK4

    8 - 11 July 2019

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Variant Discovery with GATK4 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/variant-discovery-with-gatk4 This workshop will focus on the core steps involved in calling germline short variants, somatic short variants, and copy number alterations with the [Broad’s Genome Analysis Toolkit (GATK)](https://www.broadinstitute.org/gatk/), using “Best Practices” developed by the GATK methods development team. A team of methods developers and instructors from the Data Sciences Platform at Broad will give talks explaining the rationale, theory, and real-world applications of the GATK Best Practices. You will learn why each step is essential to the variant-calling process, what key operations are performed on the data at each step, and how to use the GATK tools to get the most accurate and reliable results out of your dataset. If you are an experienced GATK user, you will gain a deeper understanding of how the GATK works under-the-hood and how to improve your results further, especially with respect to the latest innovations. *Day 1: Introductory and Overview. The first day of the workshop gives a high-level overview of various topics in the morning, and in the afternoon we show how these concepts apply to a case study. The case study is tailored based on the audience, as represented by their answers in our pre-workshop survey. *Day 2: Germline Short Variant Discovery. Today we dive deep into the tools that make up the GATK Best Practices Pipeline. In the morning we discuss variant discovery, and in the afternoon we look at refinement and filtering. You will have the opportunity both in the morning and in the afternoon to get hands-on with these tools and run them yourself. *Day 3: Somatic Variant Discovery. Today we will cover Somatic Variant Discovery in more depth. In the morning we primarily focus on calling short variants with Mutect2, and in the afternoon we look at copy number alterations. Both sections have a paired hands-on activity. *Day 4: Pipelining. Over the first three days, you would have learned a lot about different pipelines and tools that you can use in GATK. Today we will be learning all about how those pipelines are written in a language called WDL. In the afternoon we cover other useful topics to working on the cloud, including Docker and BigQuery. Please note that this workshop is focused on human data analysis. The majority of the materials presented does apply equally to non-human data, and we will address some questions regarding adaptations that are needed for analysis of non-human data, but we will not go into much detail on those points. The hands-on GATK tutorials in this workshop will be conducted on [Terra](https://terra.bio/), a new platform developed at Broad in collaboration with Verily Life Sciences for accessing data, running analysis tools and collaborating securely and seamlessly. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.
