NGS data CRAMing, Archiving & Exploring
The first ENA course for this year is for the scientists at the forefront of biological research using next generation sequencing technologies (NGS).
It is an opportunity for others like bench biologist, bioinformaticians etc to discuss technological advances in their field as well as approaches to handling, archiving and analysing data for effective public dissemination of their research, in a way which is reproducible and comparable on a global scale.
The workshop is aimed at scientists and technical persons from active sequencing groups.
The purpose of this course is to provide an opportunity for attendants to use their experience of high throughput data generation to advise the service team and make recommendations about the optimal presentation of their data.
Preparation and Materials
A significant part of the event will be dedicated to hands-on & lectures.
After this course participants can expect to have:-
- knowledge about upload, submit, archive and explore NGS data
- gained awareness of how INSDC services can aid in the management and global communication of data
- shared problems and solutions with colleagues in other NGS fields
- developed an appreciation of the sequencing landscape and how they fit in to it
