From Variant Calling to Clinical Interpretation

With the advances in Next Generation Sequencing technologies, the NGS data analysis has become very important and critical task in any lab working in Genomics. Analyzing Big Genomics data (like NGS data) needs very sophisticated tools and computational infrastructure. The tools can be easily made available as most of the tools are open source, but the computation power and expertise needed to use these tools and perform NGS data analysis can become a challenging task. We have designed this online workshop to understand and learn NGS data analysis using command line tools. In this workshop we will focus on Clinical Variant Analysis widely used in Precision Genomics. The workshop will cover various aspects of NGS data analysis that can also be applied to other DNA sequencing approaches. 

Topics Covered

  • Bioinformatics and Genomic Databases
  • Linux for Biologists
  • NGS Data Analysis – different file formats, tools, and methods
  • Variant Calling Analysis using command line tools
  • Variant Annotation tools, databases
  • Variant interpretation – ACMG/AMP guidelines, GWAS associations, Population databases
  • Case studies to understand Clinical Variant Analysis pipeline

Course features

  • Detailed discussions on all important topics
  • Demonstration of software usage with relevant examples
  • Online Courses with industry-relevant case study
  • Access to workshop material
  • Support for technical queries during and after the course

What our participants say...

This workshop provided me with the opportunity to enhance my domain knowledge pertaining to the interpretation of NGS data as well as making use of various Linux commands using the Mac Terminal. Best Bioinformatics workshop attended till date!!

Siddharth Gahlaut

Student at IISER Pune

Good and nicely organized workshop. Learned Basic Linux, alignments, NGS data analysis.

Dr Kiran Bollibothula

Scientist at Bayer Crop Sciences

Topics were selected appropriately for application in Clinical NGS Data Analysis. Perfectly organized workshop!

Dr. Y.G.Thushara Priyawansha

MD (Paediatrics)

I learnt how to build a pipeline that could be useful for NGS! Absolutely great workshop! Looking forward to attending more of your workshops in the future.
