Friday, December 7th 2012 - 9h00-10h00

Talk and workshops will be given in English.
Registration, lunch and refreshments are free.

These Workshops are intended for scientists interested in the processing and the interpretation of high-throughput "omics" data. The objective is to familiarize people with methods and tools to analyze and integrate large-scale data sets.

The hands-on workshops that will be given are:

Workshops - December 7th

Please note that registration is free but all cancellation must be done at least 48 hours before the event. Any cancellation done beyond this delay or the participant absence to the event will results in a $50 fee charged to the participant's Principal Investigator.

Workshop Next-generation sequencing data (whole genome/exome sequencing) - FULL


Talk topics:
  • Read trimming
  • Aligning the reads to the genome reference
  • Marking duplicates
  • Compute metrics and generating coverage track
  • Single Nucleotide Variant calling
  • Structural variant calling
  • Copy number variant calling

Location: McGill University Trottier Building
Date: December 7th 2012
Time: 10h30 to 12h30

Workshop Next-generation sequencing data (RNA-Seq, Methyl-Seq, ChIP-Seq) - FULL

This workshop is geared towards biologists or bioinformaticians working with next generation sequencing datasets. Minimal unix knowledge is recommended, but step by step computational procedures will be performed live with support. Pipelines will be running on the Mammouth2 compute canada cluster with scaled down datasets using temporary accounts.

Talk topics:
  • RNA-Seq - De novo isoform discovery and differential transcript expression analysis
  • Methylation-Seq - Reduced region bisulfite sequencing and differential methylation region analysis
  • ChIP-Seq - Narrow (transcription factor) vs wide (histone marks) peak calling. Peak statistics, annotation and motif discovery.

Location: McGill University Trottier Building
Date: December 7th 2012
Time: 10h30 to 12h30
