CLC Workbench / Ingenuity Variant Analysis Workshop

This hands-on training workshop will introduce users to the CLC Cancer Research Workbench ( for the fast and efficient processing and visualisation of Human NGS data, and to Ingenuity Variant Analysis ( for the identification, prioritisation and biological interpretation of DNA Variants. The case study will cover the basics of data visualisation, QC, the creation of user-constructed workflows, and the identification of variants from targeted human DNA resequencing using the Workbench. The biological significance of the variants will then be interpreted using Ingenuity Variant Analysis which will allow users to additionally annotate, filter and prioritise variants based on their biological relevance.
