WEBINAR: Getting started with whole genome mapping and variant calling on the command line
24 August 2022WEBINAR: Getting started with whole genome mapping and variant calling on the command line https://www.biocommons.org.au/events/wgs-command-line http://tess.elixir-uk.org/events/webinar-getting-started-with-whole-genome-mapping-and-variant-calling-on-the-command-line Life scientists are increasingly using whole genome sequencing (WGS) to ask and answer research questions across the tree of life. Before any of this work can be done, there is the essential but challenging task of processing raw sequencing data. Processing WGS data is a computationally challenging, multi-step process used to create a map of an individual’s genome and identify genetic variant sites. The tools you use in this process and overall workflow design can look very different for different researchers, it all depends on your dataset and the research questions you’re asking. Luckily, there are lots of existing WGS processing tools and pipelines out there, but knowing where to start and what your specific needs are is hard work, no matter how experienced you are. In this webinar we will walk through the essential steps and considerations for researchers who are running and building reproducible WGS mapping and variant calling pipelines at the command line interface. We will discuss how to choose and evaluate a pipeline that is right for your dataset and research questions, and how to get access to the compute resources you need. **Who the webinar is for** This webinar is intended for life scientists who are using and building whole genome sequencing mapping and variant calling pipelines. Some familiarity with the concepts of whole genome sequencing is recommended. **Presenter:** Dr Georgina Samaha, Sydney Informatics Hub, University of Sydney **Date/time:** 24 August 2021 - 12:00-13:00 AEST / 11:30 - 12:30 ACST / 10:00-11:00 AWST **How to join:** This webinar is free to join but you must register for a place in advance. **[Register here] (https://unimelb.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_ekHib2_2QYazaH06VFMPgQ)** 2022-08-24 12:00:00 UTC 2022-08-24 13:00:00 UTC Australian BioCommons Whole genome sequencing Sequencing Genomics Bioinformatics Workflows Australian Biocommons firstname.lastname@example.org   500 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served
