We are pleased to announce a joint ALLBIO and COST SeqAhead event in
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
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!
