你将学到什么

How to reconstruct a genome by stringing together its tiny fragments using popular genome assembly tools to sequence a pathogen

How to find mutations in your genome and how to test whether they are linked to genetic diseases.

Investigate the genetic makeup of a "trio" (mother, father, and child) to figure out whether the child inherited the disease from the parents or unluckily developed the genetic disease through de novo mutations

How to analyze gene expressions

How to investigate what genes are turned on or off in various tissues in order to figure out which genes are important for each cell type and which genes are over-expressed in cancer and other diseases.

课程概况

Are you interested in analyzing biological datasets but don’t have a strong computational background? Do you want to focus on the biology and learn how to use modern best-practice pipelines that use existing tools? This introductory course, geared towards non-computational biologists, will introduce a specific biological problem each week centered around next generation sequencing and teach you how to use Illumina’s BaseSpace platform to run workflows conveniently and in a user-friendly manner.

You will learn current best-practice workflows for Genome Assembly, Variant Calling, Trio Analysis, and Differential Expression Analysis as well as the types of biological problems that motivate them.

课程大纲

Week 1: Assembling Genomes
Given raw whole genome sequence data, you will learn how to perform genome assembly, assess the quality of the assembled genome, perform annotation and gene prediction, and perform basic comparative genomics
Week 2: Searching for Disease-Causing Mutations
Given raw whole genome sequence data as well as raw whole exome sequence data, you will learn how to perform variant calling and will dive into comparing and contrasting the pros and cons of each sequencing method
Week 3: Will Modifications of Embryos Treat Genetic Diseases?
Given raw whole genome sequence data from parents and a child, you will learn how to perform variant calling on each and how to perform “trio analysis” (e.g. finding which parent was the source of each of the child’s SNVs, searching for rare de novo mutations, and finding compound heterozygous traits)
Week 4: Analyzing Gene Expression
Given raw RNA-Seq data from different samples, you will learn how to align the reads, count the number of transcripts of each gene in either sample, and perform pairwise differential expression across the samples to determine which genes underwent the most significant expression changes
