Exome sequencing 101
High-throughput target sequencing of exons and other genomic regions using an in-solution capture method
The Ontario Genomics Institute (OGI) and The Centre for Applied Genomics (TCAG) are hosting a one hour web conference/webinar about high throughput target sequencing of specific genomic regions such as the almost complete set of human or mouse exons (exome) or panels of genes associated with genetic disorders.
The webinar will cover:
Basics of the methodology and data analysis:
- Sample requirements
- Library preparation
- Capture technology
- Data analysis
Visualizing and interpreting Next Generation Sequencing data:
- Visualizing read alignments
- Reading SNP and short indel reports
- Assessing the quality of variant predictions
The presentation will be led by Dr. Sergio Pereira, manager for the Next Generation Sequencing Facility at The Centre for Applied Genomics. The webinar will be appropriate for all levels from graduate student to principal investigator interested in learning.
