April 9, 2013 Boot Camp – Next Generation Sequencing Technology Fundamentals & Applications

by Joe Fass

***Registration is full***

Bootcamp Description

Next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies allow laboratories to do genome-wide research that was previously only possible at large genome centers. This bootcamp teaches key concepts and applications of major sequencing technologies (Illumina, 454, SOLiD, Ion Torrent & PacBio) including technology basics, technology-specific error modes, experiment design considerations, common data analysis workflows (like RNA-Seq, genome assembly, ChIP-Seq, SNP- and other variant discovery, etc.) and associated IT concerns. Completion of this bootcamp will prepare you for application-specific bootcamps like RNA-Seq Data Analysis.
