5th National Workshop
Next Generation Sequencing Data Analysis

Biomedical Informatics Centre, National Institute of Pathology-ICMR, New Delhi
15th to 17th March, 2017
Announcement

National Institute of Pathology is one of the premier research Institutes of Indian Council of Medical Research and has infrastructure and expertise in various aspects of “Modern Technologies” such as genomics, proteomics, immunology, structural and stem cell biology etc.

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) through whole-genome sequencing (WGS) and whole-exome sequencing (WES) technologies has produced breakthrough in understanding complexity of genomes including point mutations, small insertions or deletions, copy number alterations and structural variations in disease conditions.

Transcriptome sequencing (RNA sequencing/RNA-Seq) provides fundamental insights into altered gene expression of genetic variants in different experimental conditions.

The differentially expressed genes in a specific disease could hold clues for disease diagnosis and therapeutic target discovery. Recently, transcriptome sequencing mostly relies on NGS methodology and techniques. The purpose of this workshop is to get a deeper understanding in NGS with a special focus on bioinformatics issues. All workshop attendees will be enabled to perform important first tasks of NGS data analysis themselves. The course layout has been adapted to the needs of beginners in the field of NGS bioinformatics and allows scientists with little background in computer science to get a first hands-on experience in this fast evolving research topic.

Topics to be covered

 NGS technology overview
 NGS file format and QC
 NGS Genomic data analysis: Alignment, Variant calling and annotations
 De novo assembly
 RNA-Seq Data Analysis: Differential expression analysis
 Annotations, Network and Pathway analysis of differentially expressed genes

Who should attend?

M.B.B.S./ M.Sc./ M.Tech./ M.D./ Ph.D. students, faculty members, biomedical scientists, clinicians from any branch of Biomedical sciences or a relevant field. Maximum  no. of participants for the workshop will be restricted to 20. Candidate selection will be based on first come first serve basis.
