Intensive Hands on Workshop on Human Genome and Transcriptome Data Analysis

March 27-30, 2017, Yenepoya University, Mangalore, India

Center for Systems Biology and Molecular Medicine (CSBMM) is a premier center for Genomics, Proteomics and Computational Biology. CSBMM is carrying out cutting edge research in employing NextGen sequencing-based genomics and transcriptomics to understand and enable biomedical discoveries intended towards translation in the area of biomedical research including human diseases, performance of live stock and plant biology. CSBMM has also established a state-of-the-art proteomics facility to discover and validate candidate biomarkers in human diseases ranging from various infectious diseases to cancers. As a part of academic program of Yenepoya University, scientists at CSBMM will share their expertise in NextGen sequencing-based genomic data analysis with young researchers in India, through this workshop. The organizing team of this workshop has successfully conducted over 20 national workshops on NextGen sequencing-based genomic and transcriptomic analysis. Several faculty and students from reputed Research Institutes and Universities from India have participated in these workshops.

Contents of the workshop

Introductory lectures on high-throughput sequencing methods are arranged. Hands-on sessions are designed to assess and apply quality control, analysis method to align whole-genome and whole-exome sequencing data against human reference and subsequent variant identification and functional annotation. Differential expression analysis using transcript assembly of RNA Seq data and making interpretation of large genome datasets of human will be performed. Publicly available online resources for data and analysis will be demonstrated. A new interdisciplinary subject of proteogenomics will be carried out hands on. A live demonstration of sequencing using Oxford nanopore platform will be performed.

The hands-on training on genomic data analysis and annotation during the workshop will result in a manuscript, which will be submitted to an international peer reviewed journal for publication. All the participants will be co-authors on this manuscript.
