This course will provide the end user with a better knowledge of how to analyze their Genomics data using various Linux (command line) based analytical tools. Hands-on activities include analyzing whole genome for causal variants, transcriptome for gene expression, and epigenetics for calling peaks in ChIP/ATAC-Seq.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn how to use Linux/Unix command line tools to analyze Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data (whole genome/exome, transcriptome, epigenome).

  2. Identify causal variants from whole genome/exome NGS data using Broad’s Genome Analysis Toolkit (GATK) Best Practices guidelines.

  3. Identify significant genes being regulated in transcriptome studies.

  4. Call and annotate peaks from ChIP-Seq and ATAC-Seq studies.
