Default Webinar: Sequence alignment: the central step in reference based NGS data analysis

Greetings from Persistent LABS !!

Join us for the third webinar of our series on "Sequence alignment: the central step in reference based Next Generation Sequencing data analysis" on Friday, January 20, 2017 at 11:30 AM IST (6:00 AM GMT) and 8:00 PM IST (2:30 PM GMT).

In our earlier webinars we discussed about various challenges in NGS data analysis and different approaches to address them. One of the main challenges in the data analysis pipeline is optimal sequence alignment. A wide variety of alignment algorithms and tools have been developed leading to difficulty in choosing the right tool and its parameters based upon type of NGS data one has. In this webinar, we will discuss challenges around alignment of NGS reads to the reference genome considering commonly used alignment tools. Furthermore, we will talk in detail about various post alignment quality control checks which can be employed to reduce the chances of getting false positive results.
