This workshop is aimed at researchers interested in using open source tools for analyzing Next Generation DNA Sequencing (NGS) data. After learning essential techniques of the Linux operating system with the bash shell in the Linux Basics workshop, students will apply these newly acquired skills and identify single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) from NGS data using Linux command-line driven open source software and explore the results using graphical visualization tools.

The computer laboratory exercises require that students bring a laptop* to connect to the Linux system in the Biotechnology Center. ;

A $140 fee is required for each student and includes the costs of a printed manual workbook of over 140 pages or more.

* There is a minimal set of software that should be installed on laptops BEFORE attending the workshop. Instructions will be provided to attendees prior to the workshop and can be found within the PDF document: GETTING PREPARED FOR CLASS
