Understanding genome-wide variation requires the 1) assembly of millions of short reads produced by high throughput sequencing technology into a single genomic sequence, and 2) accurate identification of genomic variants from this genomic sequence. The volume of data and many errors introduced during sequencing can make these tasks both bioinformatically challenging and computationally expensive. This session by Tim Webster will present the design and implementation of a reproducible pipeline for reference-based and quality-controlled genome assembly and variant calling.
This is a series of interactive seminars sponsored by the Research Computing Faculty Working Group. The seminars are intended to provide student and faculty researchers hands-on exposure to the research computing resources available at ASU and to provide an opportunity for discussion, troubleshooting, and information sharing. These seminars will range from the introduction to high performance computing and basic programming, to discipline-specific workshops.
This interactive workshop will begin with a lecture (10–11 a.m.) and will be followed by hands-on practice (11 a.m.–noon). A member of the Research Computing training subgroup will be present at each seminar to facilitate discussion.
