From calling bases to calling variants: experiences from the analysis of Illumina sequencing data
Meeting Room 2, CMS
High-throughput sequencing makes the genome sequence accessible to individual research groups. Many groups have had no prior exposure to data at this scale, and with the challenges that come with the obvious opportunities of sequencing at this scale. In this talk will discuss experiences with Illumina sequence data at the Wellcome Trust Centre of Human Genetics, and from the more extensive data collection in the 1000 Genomes project. The focus will be on transforming raw data into useful variant calls, and the quality control measures that we have found useful.
