This half-day workshop is an introduction to bioinformatic analysis of high throughput sequencing. The various sequencing techniques, the type of data that they produce and mainstream applications will be described. The workshop will also include the areas of service offered by the ANU’s Genome Discovery Unit (GDU).
Target audience:
 All researchers aiming to write grants that include bioinformatics in 2013. Postdocs and lab leaders who would like to know more about high throughput sequencing techniques, their applications and the sequencing and bioinformatic services offered by the BRF and GDU respectively. Graduate and postgraduate students who are planning to use next generation sequencing in their research.
