Tutorial Details: Getting Started with Illumina Genome Analyzer Data Analysis

Date: Tuesday, April 19, 2011, 09:00 am - 11:00 am
Location: Room 397 University Square, UM Rochester
Instructor(s): Zheng Jin Tu, MSI

Because of the extremely high volume of data generated by the Illumina/Solexa sequencing instrument, computational and bioinformatics skills are needed to handle data and perform data analysis.

This hands-on tutorial will help users get started with data analysis for Illumina sequencing data. We will use sample data sets to walk through the basic steps, including converting qseq files into fastq files, quality control of sequence data, de novo sequence assembly with velvet and abyss, alignment/mapping with bowtie and maq, etc.

Level: Introductory
Prerequisites: Genomic sequencing knowledge
