The Hub of Bioinformatics and Biostatistics at the Institut Pasteur organizes thematic courses open to everybody. The second session, entitled “Introduction to NGS data analysis” will take place every Tuesday, from the May 10th to June 28th 2016, in the room Retrovirus No. 14, at the ground floor of Lwoff building. This course will provide a general introduction to the concepts of sequencing data analysis, alternating theory and practice on various data types: DNA-Seq, RNA-Seq, Chip-Seq, Metagenomics and HiC.
The course is aimed at people who want to get familiarized with the concepts and tools used for the analysis of sequencing data. The objective is to present the basic concepts such as file formats, mapping of sequences as well as the specific procedures for each data type. Participants are asked to come with a fully charged laptop (not enough plugs available) with the required tools already installed (ssh connection client). The list of required software will be available on the course web page ten days before the start of the session. This course is an introduction to sequencing data analysis.
Knowledge of the basic Linux command lines is highly recommended. Otherwise it is advisable to follow the introductory tutorial available here (https://cours.web.pasteur.fr/unix/unix-I/#1) and on the course web page.
