Next Generation Sequencing Workshop 2011
SEQUENCE READ ARCHIVE
The Next Generation Sequencing Workshop will include units covering the EBI's Sequence Read Archive (SRA) service. One day will be spent specifically on the SRA and the SRA will be used as the source for data to be processed in the other sessions. Students can expect to become familiar with submission and retrieval formats for both metadata and data, submission pipelines and data retrieval using browser and webservices methods.
VELVET / CURTAIN
Velvet and Curtain are two complementary tools that can be used for the assembly of genomes from next-generation sequence data. The session will consist of an introduction to both programs, followed by an exercise using short and long read data.
ChIP-SEQ DATA ANALYSIS
The goal of this session is to perform some basic tasks in the analysis of ChIP-seq data. We will find immuno-enriched areas using MACS and PeakAnalyzer utilities. We will visualize the data in a genome browser and perform annotation and motif analysis on the predicted binding regions.
