NIH Library Bioinformatics Class: Whole Exome Sequencing Data Analysis

The NIH Library Bioinformatics Support Program is presenting a Whole Exome Sequencing Data Analysis class on July 13, 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. in the NIH Library Training Room, in Building 10. For more information about the classes and to register, use the link below.

Whole Exome Sequencing Data Analysis
This training will provide an introduction to exome sequencing data analysis followed by tutorials showing the use of an exome analysis workflow. The session will also feature a hands-on exercise during which participants will independently run a basic exome analysis for variant detection using a “point and click” approach. The exercise will run on a Galaxy platform using Illumina paired-end exome sequencing data, during which participants will:

·         Run a quality control check on sequencing data

·         Align the sequencing reads to a reference genome

·         Generate alignment statistics and check mapping quality

·         Identify variants

·         Visualize the exome sequencing data and variants

Further information about the classes and registration is available through the links above. Even if the class is full, please sign up for the waitlist and plan on attending the class. When the class begins, empty seats will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis by waitlisted students who arrive early and sign in. An effort is made to accommodate everyone.

Sign language interpreters and other reasonable accommodations can be provided. If you require such accommodations, please contact the NIH Library Information Desk at 301-496-1080 five business days in advance. For TDD users/callers, please call the above number through the Federal Relay Service at 1-800-877-8339.
