SIB course: "NGS - Quality control, Alignment, Visualisation"

"NGS - Quality control, Alignment, Visualisation", on 27 February to 01 March 2019, in Bern, Switzerland.


In this module, we will introduce the most used sequencing technologies and explain their decryption concepts.

We will also introduce the repositories e.g. the European Nucleotide Archive (ENA), Sequence Read Archive (SRA) from which you can retrieve raw data based on specific experiments. We will practice the usage of command line tools to search and fetch NGS raw data in a powerful way. Finally, using different datasets, we will practice screening for quality control, filtering reads for better downstream analysis, mapping reads to reference genome and visualizing the output.

This course is targeted to life scientists who are already dealing with NGS data or willing to efficiently use publicly available NGS data, and would like to be able to start analyzing them.

Further detailed information, prerequisites and application form are available here.
