Status: Completed

Using materials this workshop introduces you to the fundamentals working with data in the field of Genomics

This is a beginner level workshop series that is hands-on, covering the fundamentals of Unix command line and basic genomic skills for short read sequence data. In this workshop participants will learn how to do quality assessment, read trimming and filtering, data management, and task automation on the high performance computing infrastructure resources from the Digital Research Alliance of Canada (formerly Compute Canada). Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems. The workshop will cover a variant calling pipeline and participants will learn skills that will be broadly applicable to other genomics tasks.
