This 1.5-day workshop will include a short introduction to next-generation sequencing theory and an introduction to Galaxy. The hands-on component of the workshop will cover the concepts of de novo assembly and initial annotation of a genome from short-read NGS data.
Prior to joining the QFAB team as a computational biologist in 2014, Mike held positions at University of Medicine and Dentistry, New Jersey (2009-2010) and at Academia Sinica, Taiwan (2011-2013). He brings expertise in handling and analysing both microarray and next generation sequencing with various tools and programming languages (Java, Perl and R). He is fascinated by tackling genomic data with interdisciplinary knowledge. He is also interested in regulation of miRNA in apoptotic pathways.
