The Application and Analysis of Next Generation Sequencing Technologies
Friday, May 27, 2011 Bevill Building (BBRB) Room 170
Workshop: 9 - 11 AM, Lunch: 11:15 AM
Symposium: 11:30 AM
NextGen-UAB was a daylong workshop and symposium to promote the exchange of information between investigators using
and interested in using next generation sequencing (and other) state-of-the-art systems biology technologies. The emphasis was on the research projects utilizing these technologies, and the analytical approaches available and under development to help understand the data generated by these technologies.
This workshop and symposium was held on Friday, May 27, 2011. The day started with a hands-on, bring your own laptop, analysis workshop organized by Shawn Levy of the HudsonAlpha Institute (HAIB). Then the afternoon symposium consisted of a series of talks that covered the use and application of NextGen technologies (ongoing and planned research at UAB/HAIB) and approaches to the analysis of NextGen data (both the research to develop new analytical tools as well as the use of existing tools).
Sequencing file formats, data management and primary analysis methods including filtering and alignment or assembly.
Secondary analysis procedures and data annotation including RNAseq annotation, ChIP seq analysis and variant calling.
Open source and web-based data analysis tools that are freely available for the analysis of genomic data.
