WEBINAR April 03: Short read DNA sequencing alignment and visualization

Join us for a one-hour webinar on Wednesday, April 03 where we'll walk through the process of mapping and visualizing reads from diverse datasets. This online presentation will be hosted by Phillip Richmond, a PhD Candidate at the Centre for Molecular Medicine & Therapeutics at the University of British Columbia.

Description

Data generated from high throughput DNA sequencing technology can be used for many diverse applications, such as variant calling or enrichment detection from a pool of sequenced DNA. A key part of many pipelines where a reference genome exists (e.g. human or model organisms) is mapping the short sequences back to the reference genome.

In this webinar, we will walk through the process of mapping and visualizing reads from diverse datasets including ChIP-seq and ATAC-seq, which can provide insight into the transcriptional regulation of genes. To enable follow-up learning and self-paced exploration after the webinar, the speaker will deposit functional scripts and example datasets on the Cedar compute cluster.

Format

This is an online webinar. Connection instructions will be emailed to all registrants.
