When: 7th-9th January 2015

A few places are still remaining and are available for external applicants. Places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

Next Generation Sequencing methods are becoming ubiquitous in all areas of biology. This three day workshop aims to enable wet-lab biologists to understand and implement basic pipelines for analysis of NGS data. Topics covered will include:

*         An overview of NGS technology

*         A brief introduction to library preparation

*         Common file formats

*         Quality Control

*         Genome Assembly

*         Mapping

*         Variant Calling

The workshop will consist of a mixture of short talks and practical work. Participants are required to have some basic knowledge of Unix to enable them to follow the practical work.

Further details and the registration form are available on the University of Leicester Bioinformatics and Biostatistics Analysis Support Hub (http://goo.gl/SKq27X). Please email me directly if you have any queries.
