TRAC 45: Bioinformatic Analysis of Next Generation Sequencing Data

Biotechnology Training Courses at the National Institutes of Health

This course will introduce students to bioinformatic analysis of next generation sequencing data, particularly for DNA-seq, RNA-seq, CHIP-seq, and epigenomics. The course will be comprised of lectures and hand-on sessions. Lectures will cover background knowledge and survey various software programs. For hand-on sessions, command line tools will be presented and the galaxy web based platform will be used to analyze primary data. Cloud computing, genomic databases, and de novo assembly will be surveyed.

Topics: Overview on Bioinformatics Tools: Galaxy (Pre-processing, Format Conversion, etc.), Databases and Tools, SNP Callers, Cloud; RNA-seq; CHIP-seq; Epigenomics; Cloud Computing; 10k Genomes; Data Visualization; Comparative Genomics and Genome Alignment (biology + software); Tutorial & Laboratory for de novo Assembly; RNA-seq, DNA-sequencing.
