The 3-day course will provide a practical introduction to analysis of next generation sequencing data from handling of raw data to applications in study of human disease. As example of analysis techniques, methods to examine exomic sequence and RNA-seq data will be covered in depth. We will illustrate the use of sequence data in combination with methods for mapping disease genes in genetic studies.
