Crick-Intel Workshop: Computational challenges and performance optimizations in NGS data analyses

Location: Darwin, Ground Floor, Wellcome Trust, Gibbs Building, 215 Euston Road, London NW1 2BE
Dates: 3-6 September 2013

Next-generation sequencing datasets are continuing to increase in size, and even small genomic projects now generate terabytes of data. The sheer scale of these datasets now poses a great computational challenge: how can we improve software pipelines to analyse data more efficiently?

Designed jointly by Intel and the Francis Crick Institute, this workshop will tackle some of these challenges and train participants in the principles and practicalities of optimizing NGS analysis pipelines.
The workshop is aimed at bioinformaticians who are currently performing NGS data analysis.
