Talk Abstract: The seminar provides an overview of concepts, tools and data types used in analysis of high-throughput sequencing data, such as reference\r\ngenomes and genome indices, aligners and genome browsers, alignment and gene annotation formats. The participants will be introduced to a local\r\nGalaxy-qld server, a web-based platform for analysis of high-throughput sequencing data.\r\nThe seminar is aimed for people new to genomics and nextGen sequencing and may be useful for researchers across all areas of IMB. It does not require IT knowledge or programming skills. The seminar is designed as a theoretical introduction to planned Galaxy workshops.
Speaker's bio: Igor Makunin was trained as a geneticist and molecular biologist at the Novosibirsk State University, Russia. In 2003 he moved to the University of Queensland to work on comparative genomics and non-coding RNA. In 2010-12 Igor studied various aspects of the familial breast and ovarian cancers using high-throughput sequencing methods at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research. In 2012 Igor joined the newly formed Genomics Virtual Lab project at UQ, where he provides support to scientists working with high-throughput sequencing data.
