Informatics on High-throughput Sequencing Data

Workshop banner

Course Objectives

With the introduction of high-throughput sequencing platforms from Illumina, Roche and ABI, 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 2-day course covering the bioinformatics tools available for managing and interpreting high-throughput sequencing data.

Beginning with an understanding of the workflow involved to move from platform images to sequence generation, participants will gain practical experience and skills to be able to:

  • Assess sequence quality
  • Map sequence data onto a reference genome (required)
  • Quantify sequence data
  • Integrate biological context with sequence information
