As part of the CASyM Winter School, we will give a short summary for the current usage and possible future applications of the Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology in the clinical context. This will be followed by a showcase project that involves a NGS dataset analysis of clinical data with the help of our recently published analysis workflow named TRAPLINE, which also utilizes the Galaxy-RNA-Workbench. Using latest technologies, we will explain and show all relevant analysis steps during the data analysis as well as giving further suggestions to link the obtained results to current gene-disease related databases or other relevant resources to enhance the clinical impact. Finally, we will discuss current or planned use cases of NGS experiments of the participating researchers to provide specific advice in NGS data analysis.
This NGS workshop will present state of the art diagnostic techniques as well as the latest data analysis tools and disease related databases to enable the participants to get in touch with one of the most promising technologies in life science and, furthermore, to enhance a reuse later on in the clinic.
We encourage applications by everyone with a basic knowledge in biomedicine or bioinformatics (undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral students).
