This is the home of the Core NGS Tools course, May 2018June 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 206 of Parlin hall (PAR). As there are no workstations available in this room, you will need to bring your personal laptop or work closely with someone who has one.This workshop will be held via Zoom, URL: https://utexas.zoom.us/j/91965141761
There will be a ~15 minute short break each day around 10:30am with refreshments available in PAR 303.
Your TACC account will remain on our class' TACC project allocation through June 30, 2021.
Contact us for access to recordings of each day's materials after the course is over.
