University of Michigan Center for Statistical Genetics
Monday, May 18 - Friday, May 22, 2015
Next generation sequencing technologies are changing human genetic studies - enabling more complete assessment of genetic variation across increasingly large sample sets. This workshop will provide participants with theoretical and practical experience with a variety of sequence analysis tools, including the opportunity to meet and discuss with tool developers. A basic understanding of the UNIX operating system and command-line tools is required.
Workshop participants who register early will be given the option to analyze their own whole genome sequence data.
- Design of Human Genetic Studies
- Variant Calling and Filtering for SNPs and Indels
- Estimates of Genetic Ancestry
- Sequence Mapping and Assembly
- Analysis of Structural Variation
- Genetic Association Analyses
