Are you interested in analyzing biological datasets but don’t have a strong computational background? Do you want to focus on the biology and learn how to use modern best-practice pipelines that use existing tools? This introductory course, geared towards non-computational biologists, will introduce a specific biological problem each week centered around next generation sequencing and teach you how to use Illumina’s BaseSpace platform to run workflows conveniently and in a user-friendly manner.

You will learn current best-practice workflows for Genome Assembly, Variant Calling, Trio Analysis, and Differential Expression Analysis as well as the types of biological problems that motivate them.

by Arya completed this course, spending 10 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
A really wonderful course. Difficult concepts distilled to an easily digestible and methodical syllabus. The course is designed for all skillsets, and I've recommended this course to countless bioinformaticians and biologists alike. All have come away with something useful from the course, and I would recommend anybody interested in analyzing their genome to take it!
