Introduction to Next Generation Sequencing.

Next generation sequencing (NGS) describes technologies that produce billions of base pairs of sequence data per experiment. The rapidly decreasing costs of these technologies (currently 10 Mbp / dollar) allows an increasing number of biologists to incorporate genome-scale sequencing into their research. The goal of this workshop is to introduce participants to the essentials of NGS, so that they can develop and initiate their own projects in phylogenetics, population genetics, and gene expression using this technology. In the morning, we will describe the available technologies, applications, and protocols for sample preparation and sequencing. In the afternoon, we will describe options for computational infrastructure and the analytical pipeline.Participants will then have an opportunity to work with data from the Illumina platform (100 bp reads), and explore de novo and reference guided sequence assembly.
