Rendez-vous Génome Québec

Rendez-Vous Bio-informatique 2013 (archives)

The growth in genomic technologies and the advent of Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) has opened the doors to a wide range of applications. Although the opportunities are vast, a major bottleneck in applying these new technologies is in computational biology as the large amount of data generated from such high-throughput experiments becomes difficult to interpret using standard techniques.

Location: Seminar (Morning)

855, Sherbrooke Street West,
Montréal, Québec, Canada
In English


Workshop (Afternoon)
McGill University Trottier Building, room TR 3120

Montréal, Québec, Canada
In English
Date: November 15th, 2013
Registration: - Completed -
Seminar: Introduction to Next-Generation sequence analysis

This lecture is intended for scientists interested in the processing and the interpretation of high-throughput "omics" data. The specific objective is to familiarize people with some of the methods and tools used to analyze DNA-seq, RNA-seq and ChIP-seq data. The lecture will also present methods and sample outputs associated with different analysis pipelines developed at the Génome Québec bioinformatics platform.

NOTE: The Seminar wil be given in English only.
Places are limited.

Date: November 15th, 2013
Time: 9h00 am to 12h00 pm
Audience: Open to everyone
Workshop: High-Performance Computing in Genomics

High-throughput genomics technologies are revolutionizing genetics and medical research. While next-generation sequencing is enabling a wealth of new applications that promise to have a significant impact on biology and health care, the major limiting factor as shifted from data production to data processing and interpretation. The scale of data that needs to be analyzed in genomics implies that efficient usage of High-Performance Computing (HPC) resources has become essential. This workshop is geared towards bioinformaticians and informaticians interested in working with next generation sequencing datasets and will provide hands-on experience on how to run genomics tools on a Compute Canada HPC cluster. The specific analysis pipeline that will be tested is for whole genome analysis and will cover all the steps required for variant calling. These include: adapter removal and trimming, mapping of reads on a reference genome, variant calling itself and annotation.
