GDC DNA-Seq Data Processing

September 28, 2020 02:00 p.m. - 03:00 p.m. ET
Webinar

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 Chicagos 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
Bill Wysocki, Ph.D.

Dr. Bill Wysocki is the director of user services at The University of Chicago.

Zhenyu Zhang, Ph.D.

Dr. Zhenyu Zhang is the lead bioinformatician for the GDC in the Center for Data Intensive Science (CDIS) at The University of Chicago.
