    Hands-On introduction to NGS variant analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/hands-on-introduction-to-ngs-variant-analysis-9abd671c-4d42-4124-b084-9f2453cc9799 Using a full publicly available chromosome read-set from one of the 1000 genome samples: ​Perform a complete analysis workflow including QC, read mapping, read coverage analysis, and variant calling against the human reference genome. Use GenePattern and open source software to evaluate each step of a classical NGS variant workflow and feel the complexity of the task. Quickly compare the obtained results with gold standard public data The skills acquired during this session should allow participants understand what variant calling implies. Participants with experience in command line can do the workflow using command line tools. 2020-01-20 09:00:00 UTC 2020-01-21 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core iGent, Gent, Belgium iGent Gent Belgium 9052 [] [] [] [] [] []

EMBL-EBI is one of the ELIXIR Members and many of the EMBL-EBI services are included in the ELIXIR portfolio (including eleven EMBL-EBI resources selected as ELIXIR Core Data Resources). The ELIXIR Open Day is specifically aimed at researchers and developers working on the Wellcome Genome Campus and will explain the interactions between ELIXIR, EMBL-EBI and other partners (eg. GA4GH). The participants will learn how teams working on the Campus can take advantage of ELIXIR’s pan-European infrastructure and get involved in ELIXIR activities. The agenda will focus on the operational and technical developments taking place over the next five years. The topics will include access and identity management systems (ELIXIR AAI), federated human data, ELIXIR's Strategic Partnership with GA4GH, collaboration with industry and more. The programme will be relevant to all researchers on the Campus (EMBL-EBI, the Sanger Institute and the Campus-based companies)! On this day you will also have the opportunity to find out more about the ELIXIR team and network with people working on similar projects.
