Seminar: High performance NGS analysis: from Sequence to biological significance.
When: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (LUNCH PROVIDED)
Speaker: Gianfranco de Feo, Ph.D.
NGS datasets are large, complex, challenging to analyze,and even more challenging to biologically interpret. Genomics researchers must have access to the best available tools to analyze their Whole Genome, Whole Exome, Targeted Panels,Tumor-Normal and RNA datasets. A 'best-in class' bioinformatics workflow, optimized for accuracy, speed and scalability will be described. Performance characteristics associated with secondary analysis (alignment, SNV and structural variant detection) and whole genome annotation will be discussed. The secondary software pipeline, available on desktop and enterprise systems, along with the cloud-based annotation platform will be demonstrated.
Hands on workshop: 1:00PM-5:00PM
Topic: Analyze your NGS dataset (1 per person)
Please bring your FASTQ files from an Illumina sequencer and you will be able to try out the secondary analysis workflow and annotation platform.
Post workshop, Bina platform will be accessible for trial via Genetics Bioinformatics Service Center (GBSC). Please contact Somalee if you would like to use the system during this trial period.
