Dear all,

We are pleased to announce a joint ALLBIO and COST SeqAhead event in 
Lausanne, Switzerland.
It is entitled "Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) methods for 
identification of mutations and large structural variants" and will be 
held from Tuesday March 11 to Wednesday March 12, 2014.

This international event covers several aspects of the identification of 
genomic structural variants using NGS data. The mini symposium (Day 1) 
will present the latest developments in the field and the workshop (Day 
2) will allow participants to get used to the tools with a virtual 
machine prepared during a test case hackathon (see AllBio projetct page 
<www.allbioinformatics.eu> for more information). Particular emphasis 
will be given to the comparison of the different analysis tools and how 
to combine their results.

The ALLBIO (http://www.allbioinformatics.eu) FP7 CA aims to bring 
biologists and bioinformaticians together for the effective exploitation 
of high-throughput data. The focus being to apply the human genome 
bioinformatics analysis methods to non-model organisms in microbes, 
plants, and lifestock.
ALLBIO is the main sponsor of this event, in addition 10 seats of the 
workshop are sponsored by the COST Action SeqAhead (http://www.seqahead.eu).

The objective of the mini symposium is to provide an overview of the 
existing tools / pipelines available for NGS analysis, as well as to 
present some data using those tools. The objective of the workshop is to 
allow participants using the pipeline, either with our data, or with 
their own data.

Requirements for the workshop:

- Basic knowledge of UNIX
- A laptop with at least 4 GB RAM, 50 GB of free disk space, WIFI and 
VirtualBox preinstalled

This event is organized by the Vital-IT and the Bioinformatics 
Unravelling groups of the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics.

The number of seats is limited to 90 for the mini symposium and to 25 
for the workshop.

Further information and application are available from

Hope to see you there!
