Calling all Genetics-, Bioinformatics- and NGS-enthusiasts!!!
Interested in human genetic variation and interpretation? Is heritable variations your particular area of interest ? Are you looking forward to expand your repertoire for Next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies? Want to whet your current skills and know more about new tools and techniques for NGS analysis?
Explore the four-day course on Genetic variant analysis with hands-on tutorials, a joint online program by the University of Zurich-ETH Zurich Functional Genomics Centre Zurich (FGCZ) and C-CAMP Bangalore. On successful completion of training, participants will receive a certificate of participation for the training from FGCZ.
Who can apply: Masters students, doctoral and post-doctoral fellows actively engaged in or soon to commence research involving variant analysis of NGS data.
What will the course cover: The course starts with the raw reads and covers pre-processing, alignment, variant calling, several quality-control checkpoints, annotation and impact of variation on protein function and structure. There will also be a preliminary session on somatic variant calling.
Theoretical inputs (lectures)
Hands-on activities for data analysis (computer sessions)
