Sneak Peak: NGS Resequencing Applications: Part I – Detecting DNA Variants

Join us next Wed. June 15 for a webinar on resequencing applications.

This webinar will focus on DNA variant detection using Next Generation Sequencing for the applications of targeted and exome resequencing as well as, whole transcriptome sequencing. The presentation will include an overview of each application and its specific data analysis needs and challenges. Topics covered will include Secondary Analysis (alignments, reference choices, variant detection) with a particular emphasis on DNA variant detection as well as multi-sample comparisons. For in depth comparisons of variant detection methods, Geospiza’s cloud-based GeneSifter Analysis Edition software will be used to assess sample data from NCBI’s GEO and SRA. The webinar will also include a short presentation on how these tools can be deployed for both individual researchers as well as through Geospiza’s Partner Program for NGS sequencing service providers.
