Event description


Short read DNA sequencing alignment and visualization

Data generated from high throughput DNA sequencing technology can be used for many diverse applications, such as variant calling or enrichment detection from a pool of sequenced DNA. A key part of many pipelines where a reference genome exists (e.g. human or model organisms) is mapping the short sequences back to the reference genome. In this webinar, I will walk through the process of mapping and visualizing reads from diverse datasets including ChIP-seq and ATAC-seq, which can provide insight into the transcriptional regulation of genes. Following-along this webinar may be possible for experienced users, although in order to cover the material I will be proceeding at a fast pace. To enable follow-up learning and self-paced exploration after the webinar, I will deposit functional scripts and example datasets on the Cedar compute cluster.
