Ingenuity Variant Analysis (IVA)

The NIH Library’s Bioinformatics Support Program has organized an Ingenuity Variant Analysis (IVA) training class for Thursday, August 25. This training will be held in the NIH Library Training Room, Building 10, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

QIAGEN’s IVA combines analytical tools and integrated content to help rapidly identify and prioritize variants by drilling down to a small, targeted subset of compelling variants. IVA can be used to interrogate variants from multiple biological perspectives, explore different biological hypotheses, and identify the most promising variants for follow-up.

This training class will instruct participants on how to upload datasets, efficiently use different filters within variant analysis to identify causal variants, export data, and will also cover recent IVA updates.

Morning Session

Overview of IVA and how can it be used to identify disease associated variants:

  • Introduction
  • Data upload and sharing
  • Using the filter cascade to prioritize variants
  • Hereditary disease analysis (monogenic, trios and singletons)
  • Case/Control studies
  • Exporting results

Afternoon Session

Additional use case examples:

  • Cancer studies (tumor/normal, case/control)
  • One-on-one data consultations
    (Feel free to bring VCF files you need help with analyzing)

Registration for this class is no longer available.
