Introduction to Next Generation Sequencing
Instructor: Michael Dickens
Time: Tuesday, January 22, 1:30PM-4:00PM
Location: WCL 126
This short course covers concepts of sequence mapping, variant calling and ChIP-seq analysis utilizing tools available on the Ada cluster.
The presentation slides are available as downloadable PDF files.
This course focuses, among others, on the following topics:
- NGS Tools
- NGS sequencing overview
- FASTQ Quality Control
- Aligning Sequences to a Reference Genome
- Sequencing Error Correction
- Sequence Alignment Visualization
- Digital Normalization
- Variant Calling (SNPs, indels)
- Variant Annotation
- ChIP-seq overview
Note: During the class sessions many aspects of the material will be illustrated live via a login to Ada. Attendees are welcome to follow these parts with their own laptops. They will need to configure their laptops to use the TAMULink wireless network. Relevant details on this can be found at: http://tamulink.tamu.edu/
You are encouraged to contact the HPRC helpdesk with any questions regarding Ada.
