Among other genomic applications, Whole genome sequencing “WGS”, Whole Exome Sequencing “WES” and RNA sequencing are used for the detection of genomic variants. On a genomic scale, variations manifest in the form of Single Nucleotide variants “SNVs”, insertions and deletions “Indels”, copy number variants “CNVs” or chromosomal rearrangements and are generally detected by comparing the sequencing data to a reference. The detection of genetic changes using the later technologies has many applications:
This 2 days course targets biologists and computational biologists. We will mainly focus on the detection of germline mutations by following the GATK best practices; we will also make use of other tools especially for the annotation part.
This course is intended for life scientists who are already familiar with general concepts of NGS technologies.
At the end of the course participants should be able to:
Knowledge / competencies:
Participants should have Knowledge in Next generation sequencing techniques, pre-mapping quality control, filtering and mapping to reference genome. Participants should have a basic understanding of working with command line tools on Linux or Windows-based operating systems. If you do not feel comfortable with UNIX commands, please take our UNIX fundamentals e-learning module.
Participants should bring their own computers and chargers.
