The Human Genome Project released the human reference genome in 2003, and since then DNA sequencing has become ubiquitous tool in biomedical research. What if you want to sequence your own genome? How do you interpret that data? In this workshop we will learn about the file formats describing human DNA sequencing data and its annotation. We will use data from the Genome in a Bottle (Joint Initiative for Metrology in Biology) standard datasets, and learn to use tools from the open source BEDTOOLS suite to analyze it.
MATERIALS NEEDED: Laptop with OSX/*NIX. Previous experience on the command line useful but not necessary.
