Hands-on tutorial: Modelling and bioinformatics for personalised medicine


In the beginning, we will summarize the current usage and possible future applications of the Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology in the clinical context. This will be followed by a showcase project which will involve a NGS dataset analysis of medical (clinical) data with the help of our recently published analysis workflow named TRAPLINE. We will clearly explain and show all relevant steps during the data analysis as well as giving further suggestions to link the obtained results to current gene-disease related databases or other relevant resources to promote the clinical impact of the technology and analysis method. Finally, we would discuss current or planned usages of NGS devices from the participating researchers to give specific advice in NGS data analysis.

Target audience

This NGS workshop will present state of the art diagnostic techniques as well as the latest data analyses tools and disease related databases to enable the participants to get in touch with one of the most promising technologies in life science and, furthermore, to enhance a reuse later on in their clinics.
