Event description


Kane Tse, Canada's Michael Smith Genome Sciences Centre

Session Description:

Why is there a need to perform quality control on sequenced data? As NGS analysis tools become more sophisticated in their capabilities and runtimes, it is important to ensure that the data being fed into these tools is correct and accurate before computational and human time is spent trying to interpret the result.

What makes a library fail or pass and thus suitable for Bioinformatic analysis? How is that criteria determined?

This webinar will discuss different types of QC that can be performed and the role that QC performs in ensuring a successful experiment outcome and in generating process improvements.

Who Should Attend:

  • This seminar is geared towards researchers and bioinformaticians who analyze sets of NGS data. Those who sequence large sets of data or multiple lanes from the same individual will find this seminar informative..

Pre-Requisite Skills / Knowledge:

  • The audience should be familiar with Illumina’s NGS sequencing platform and associated library construction methods to understand its impact on the observed sequence data.
