BARI, October 6-8 2010
SCOPE AND TOPICS
Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) methods are revolutionizing genomic and functional-genomics research. However, the manipulation and interpretation of the millions of sequences produced by a typical experiment still present significant computational challenges.
To provide an up-to-date overview of the latest applications of ultra-high throughput sequencing platforms and as well as the different NGS data analysis strategies for genomic sequencing, transcriptome analysis, ChIP-Seq, Metagenomics and others, we have organized the second edition of the Bari NGS international workshop.
Topics will include but will not be limited to:
Strategies for mapping NGS reads to reference sequences
Genome de novo sequencing, re-sequencing, and assembly
SNP discovery, RNA editing and genome methylation
RNA-Seq analysis for estimating expression profiles and alternative splicing pattern
Small RNA discovery and characterization
Chip-seq data analysis
The Workshop will include keynote lectures, oral presentations of selected abstracts, and a Poster session.
