Next Generation Sequencing & Data Analysis


Next Generation Sequencing and Data Analysis is Organized by REVA University, School of Physical, Chemical and Biological Sciences, Department of Biotechnology and Scientific Bio-Minds, Bangalore, 09-14, April, 2018. The cost of next generation sequencing (NGS) has fallen rapidly, allowing NGS to be routinely applied within research or clinical genetics laboratories. Whole Exome Sequencing (WES) utilizes NGS to sequence all the protein coding regions of the genome in a single assay. Performing WES can be more cost effective than performing multiple, smaller sequencing experiments, each with a panel of genes. However, adoption of NGS introduces new bioinformatics challenges to laboratories, requiring a new skill set to enable data to be processed, analyzed and interpreted correctly.

Course Objectives

This workshop will introduce two modules:

  • Sequencing (Sample selection, DNA Isolation, Library preparation, sequencing)
  • Sequencing Data Analysis with the UNIX and LINUX command line, the platform on which many bioinformatics tools are designed to run on, before outlining and exploring the steps of a bioinformatics pipeline.
