Bioinformatics Training and Education Program

september, 2020

28sep2:00 pm3:00 pmNCI Genomic Data Commons DNA-Seq Data Processing


Event Details


This webinar is intended for cancer researchers and bioinformaticians who are interested in learning more about the NCI Genomic Data Commons’ (GDC’s) bioinformatics pipelines for data harmonization.

The GDC DNA-Seq analysis pipeline identifies somatic variants within whole exome sequencing (WXS) and whole genome sequencing (WGS) data. Somatic variants are identified by comparing allele frequencies in normal and tumor sample alignments, annotating each mutation, and aggregating mutations from multiple cases.

In this webinar, The University of Chicago’s Drs. Bill Wysocki and Zhenyu Zhang will:

Provide an overview of the GDC DNA-Seq alignment workflows
Review the GDC WXS somatic variant calling workflow
Review the GDC WGS somatic variant calling, copy number variation, and structural variation workflows
Demonstrate how to download DNA-Seq data generated from GDC workflows


(Monday) 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
