The goal of this course is to provide medical doctors and clinical researchers with basic training in the analysis of Next Generation Sequencing data, with a focus on Exome-sequencing analysis for clinical applications.
The course will give an overview on the Exome-seq method and widely used computational analysis tools. We will discuss practical examples of Exome-seq application for identification of causal variants and genes in Mendelian and complex diseases as well as identification of driver genes in cancer. Practical work will focus on the analysis of Illumina sequencing data, starting from basic operation like viewing the sequence reads and quality control to comparison of sequences to the human reference, variant detection and finally pinpointing of potential target genes. We will analyze two clinical cases, a familial cardio-vascular disease and parent-child trio with child affected by mental retardation.
Duration of course: 4 days (Monday to Thursday from 4pm to 8pm)
