NGS Sequencing and Analysis Facility at Genotypic

From Library Preparation to In-depth Sequence Data Analysis



JANUARY 19th TO JANUARY 24th 2011 VENUE: Genotypic Technology, Bangalore, INDIA


TWO Day NGS work shop (NGS applications, Lab Demos and Basics of NGS analsyis for Biologists) are conducted on a regular basis.. Sign-up to register/notified about future workshops.

Genotypic Technology is conducting an extensive hands-on Workshop on Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) from January 19th to January 24th, 2011. This will cover sample/ library preparation, DNA target capture using Agilent SureSelect TM (On-array and In-solution capture), Sequencing on Illumina GAIIx and comprehensive training in Sequence Data Analysis. Experts from Genotypic, Illumina and Agilent Technologies are coming together to train the participants in this cutting edge technology. All NGS applications will be covered but the emphasis will be on Human Exome Capture and Sequencing and Whole Genome Sequencing of Microbial/ Small genomes.

For Selected Participants:

1.) Schedule for the Workshop.

2.) Emergency Contact Numbers.

3.) Directions

*Participants can get a small genome (<20 Mb) or human exome sequenced FREE while they learn*

Outline of the 6 - Day Workshop



  • Hands- on LAB Sessions Constructing Genomic DNA libraries for NGS sequencing- (Illumina platform)

  • Quality Control of Prepared Libraries.

  • Cluster generation using cBot.

  • Target Enrichment of Human Exome– using Agilent SureSelect TM (On-Array and In- solution Capture)- Quality Control of Enrichment by qPCR

  • Sequencing using Illumina GAIIx, PE module.

  • Hands- on Sequence Informatics: Feasibility study of target region resequencing

  • Design of Capture Array and RNA Baits (Agilent's e-Array and pearl codes from from Genotypic)

  • QC of NGS sequence data, (using SeqQC version 2.1).

  • Primary sequence analysis using Illumina pipeline software and public domian tools, visualization by Genome Studio and public domian tools.

  • Secondary and Advanced Analysis: Variation scoring-SNPs, InDels, SNP annotation and matching to dbSNPs. Genome mapping (circular and linear maps) of microbes

What kind of samples can be sequenced during this Workshop for FREE*?

  • One bacterial or fungal genomic DNA for Whole Genome Sequencing.


  • One Human genomic DNA for Whole Exome (All exons) Capture and Sequencing- (Targeted resequencing).

* Samples meeting QC requirements have to be shipped ahead of time prior to Workshop as per instructions provided after registration and selection of final participants

Who could attend this Workshop?

This Workshop is ideally suited for scientists who have either worked in NGS or are planning to use NGS in the near future.
