Date: Tuesday, November 22, 2011, 09:00 am - 12:00 pm
Location: Room 138 Cargill
Instructor(s): Zheng Jin Tu, MSI, Haoyu Yu, MSI

Illumina Genome Analyzer (GA) can generate up to 100 million sequence reads per lane with 5 to 10 gigabase DNA sequences. It has been widely used in biological research including genome sequencing, gene expression analysis, variation detection, etc.

This tutorial will first introduce the new terminologies and data types associated with Illumina genome analyzer. Then we will discuss general strategies about data analysis including sequence assembly, mapping, SNP detection, and data visualization.

Level: Introductory
Prerequisites: Genomic sequencing knowledge
