Helping you manage large data sets and make sense of your sequencing results

Sequencing Service Training Material

We understand that managing large data sets can be a challenge. In order to familiarize you with the file size, data format, and content, the following training packages are available. The training packages include user guides, data sheets, and example data sets.

The Illumina whole-genome sequencing (WGS) analysis pipeline delivers the full range of single nucleotide polymorphisms, small indels, structural variants, and copy number variation calling for each sample. In addition, every sample includes the results and data from a genotyping chip to validate accuracy and sample identity on an orthogonal technology.

Listen as our bioinformatics expert takes you through the WGS deliverables consisting of the Centre d’Etude du Polymorphisme Humain (CEPH) trio (NA12891, NA12892 and NA12878) This training will help familiarize you with the format of the data you will receive.

To familiarize yourself with the data, example WGS data sets are downloadable via the BaseSpace Sequence Hub Public Data page.

Easy to Interpret Cancer Analysis Data
Easy to Interpret Cancer Analysis Data

The Cancer Analysis Service provides researchers with easily interpretable tumor/normal sequencing results.

Using an optimized combined calling method, the Cancer Analysis Service provides researchers with easily interpretable tumor/normal sequencing results. When ordering cancer analysis, you will receive our standard whole-genome sequencing deliverables (as described above). Additionally, the somatic small-variant calling component of the cancer analysis pipeline outputs somatic small-variant data in the VCF format.

Listen as our bioinformatics expert takes you through the cancer analysis deliverables consisting of ATCC_HCC samples from HCC breast ductal carcinoma cell line and a matching lymphoblastoid cell line. This training will help familiarize you with the format of the data you will receive.

To familiarize yourself with the data, example data sets are downloadable via the BaseSpace Sequence Hub Public Data page.
