Default EMBL Advanced Course:Variant Calling from Genomic Sequencing Data



Monday 18 July - Wednesday 20 July 2011 at EMBL Heidelberg, Germany

Methods, Tools and Algorithms for Calling SNPs, Short InDels and Large Structural Variants from Whole-Genome Sequencing Data

This course covers methods and algorithms to call genomic alterations in a whole-genome, next-generation sequencing data set.

We will focus on algorithms to map reads, call single nucleotide polymorphisms, short indels and structural variants.

The course offers both lectures and hands-on examples. The lectures will focus on fundamental algorithms and data structures for next-generation sequencing data analysis, including

Read mapping

Realignment and consensus calling

SNP calling, filtering and annotation

Read-depth methods for large-scale genomic aberrations

Structural variant calling using paired-end and split-read alignment methods

Assembly methods



During the hands-on sessions, participants will carry out some of the above analyses on a real world whole-genome sequencing data set.

Requirements:

Participants should have a strong computational background. Familiarity with the Linux command line and computer programming is required.

Knowledge of next-generation sequencing technology and its biological applications is assumed.

Some experience with R for statistical analysis is beneficial.
