EBI: Next Generation Sequencing Practical Course


Here you will find a collection of video lectures from the 'Hands on training in Next-Generation Sequencing' course that took place at EMBL-EBI on 12-14 March 2012, available for you to watch in your own time.

The workshop provides an introduction to Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) and addresses how to interpret the data and how the analysis is applied in Genomics.

Note: the videos in this course will only run on Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Safari.

Knowledge of Genomics and sequencing is desirable but not essential.

Knowledge of Unix and the command-line is needed for the exercises.
