Default CBW workshop on HT Sequencing Informatics

The Canadian Bioinformatics Workshops (CBW) is putting on a workshop for "Informatics on High-throughput Sequencing Data". The workshop is to be held in Toronto, Ontario on July 23-24, 2009.

More information can be found at:

Lead Faculty (2009): Michael Brudno, Asim Siddiqui & Francis Ouellette
Registration Fee: $500 + GST

Target Audience

This workshop is geared to graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, clinical fellows and investigators involved in analyzing data from HT sequencing platforms.

Prerequisite: Your own laptop computer with R installed. If you do not access to a laptop, you may loan one from the CBW for a fee. Please contact for more information.

Course Objectives
With the introduction of high-throughput sequencing platforms from Illumina, Roche and ABI, it is becoming feasible to consider sequencing approaches to address many research projects. However, knowing how to manage and interpret the large volume of sequence data resulting from such technologies is less clear. The CBW has developed a 2-day course covering the bioinformatics tools available for managing and interpreting high-throughput sequencing data.

Beginning with an understanding of the workflow involved to move from platform images to sequence generation, participants will gain practical experience and skills to be able to:

* Assess sequence quality
* Map sequence data onto a reference genome
* Quantify sequence data
* Integrate biological context with sequence information

Please don't cross post the same thing, particularly when it's commercial content.

Sorry. Unclear in which section this information fits best as it is both. Feel free to remove one of the postings.
