Informatics on High-throughput Sequencing Data
Location: Downtown Montreal
Date: 9th Jun 2016 – 10th Jun 2016
With the introduction of high-throughput sequencing platforms, it is becoming feasible to consider sequencing approaches to address many research projects. However, knowing how to manage and interpret the large volume of sequence data resulting from such technologies is less clear. The CBW has developed a popular 2-day course covering the bioinformatics tools available for managing and interpreting high-throughput sequencing data, where the focus is on Illumina reads although the information is applicable to all sequencer reads.
Epigenomic Data Analysis
Location: Downtown Toronto
Date: 20th Jun 2016 – 21st Jun 2016
The CBW has developed a 2-day course providing an introduction to ChIP-seq and WGBS data analysis followed by integrated tutorials demonstrating the use of popular ChIP-Seq and WGBS analysis packages. The tutorials are designed as self-contained units that include example data and detailed instructions for installation of all required bioinformatics tools (FASTQC, BWA, MACS2, FindER, samtools, Picard, BisSNP). The course also includes an overview of integrative epigenomic tools that have been developed to explore ChIP-Seq and WGBS data together with other epigenomic datasets such as RNA-seq, DHS-seq and ATAC-seq.
