Genomic Data Commons BAM Slicing

June 26, 2023 2:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. ET

In this webinar, University of Chicago’s Dr. Bill Wysocki will demonstrate the NCI Genomic Data Commons’ (GDC’s) Binary Alignment Map (BAM) slicing feature. If you use the GDC repository, discover how this feature enables you to access specific alignments efficiently, reducing download time and storage requirements.

You will learn how to specify the subset of a BAM file for downloading by providing genome coordinates, gene symbols, or requesting unmapped reads. Dr. Wysocki will demonstrate BAM slicing through both the GDC Data Portal and the Application Programming Interface.

Take advantage of this opportunity to enhance your research efficiency and explore the GDC BAM slicing feature.

Bill Wysocki, Ph.D.

Dr. Wysocki is the director of User Services and Outreach for the GDC in the Center for Translational Data Science at the University of Chicago.
