Genomic infrastructure for NGS – Mik Black

In the current research environment, the ability to manage, analyse and interpret data produced by high ‐ throughput sequencing platforms has become an essential skill for both wet ‐ and dry ‐ lab researchers. While a number of options exist for outsourcing these tasks, the reality is that researchers still need (and desire) a level of analytic skill that allows them to perform basic exploratory analysis of their data, without having to rely on external assistance.

In this talk, I will discuss some of the infrastructure initiatives that have been undertaken in New Zealand and Australia to provide both genomics and bioinformatics support for researchers, as well as highlighting some of the tools and skills that help to ensure the robustness and reproducibility of the analyses being carried out.
