This is the home of the Core NGS Tools course, May 2017June 2021, at https://wikis.utexas.edu/display/CoreNGSTools
This workshop provides an introduction to common analysis tools and file formats currently used in NGS, with emphasis on quality assessment and manipulation of raw NGS sequences (FastQC, cutadapt), read mapping (bwa, bowtie2), the Sequence Alignment Map (SAM) format, and tools for manipulating BAM files (samtools, bedtools). Participants will gain hands-on experience using these and other NGS tools in the Linux command line environment at TACC, as well as exposure to the many bioinformatics resources TACC makes available.
We will meet in Room 4.144 of Mezes Hall. We encourage you to use the computers provided in the classroom, but you may also use your personal laptopsThis workshop will be held via Zoom, URL: https://utexas.zoom.us/j/91965141761
There will be a short break each day around 10:30am.
Your TACC account will remain on our class' TACC project allocation through June 30, 2021.
