    2013 Presentations: ChIP-seq Analysis Using Next Generation Sequencing

    Next Generation DNA sequencing technologies have ushered in a wave of analytical techniques which are intimidating due to their size and complexity. However for those trained in generating and analyzing these data sets these technologies offer powerful and innovative approaches to genome-wide investigations routine.

    In the summer of 2013, the Iowa Institute of Human Genetics will offer a Bioinformatics Short Course. The course will focus on the most popular next-generation sequencing platforms - the Illumina HiSeq and MiSeq systems, in conjunction with the powerful Galaxy framework to allow investigators to import, QC, align and analyze their data. A series of lectures to introduce basic concepts of data management within Galaxy will be interwoven with practical examples of data analysis specifically tailored to ChIP-seq analysis. Hands-on sessions will enable participants to analyze data from its generation to interpretation. This class will be valuable for both those wanting to learn the basic operations within the Galaxy frame work and also for those wanting to further understand ChIP-seq analysis.

    2012 Presentations: Mutation Detection Using Massively Parallel Sequencing: From Data Generation to Variant Annotation

    Massively parallel DNA sequencing technologies have ushered in the next wave of the genomics revolution. The clinical application of these technologies will make personalized genomic medicine a reality; in the research laboratory, these technologies are making innovative approaches to genome-wide investigations routine. In the summer of 2012, the Iowa Institute of Human Genetics offered a Bioinformatics Short Course. The course focused on most popular next-generation sequencing platforms - the Illumina HiSeq and MiSeq systems. After completing this course, participants understand the design of a next generation sequencing experiment and the workflow to achieve a particular result. A series of lectures introduced basic concepts interwoven with practical examples of data generation and analysis. Hands-on sessions enabled participants to analyze data from its generation to interpretation
