Analysis of mapped NGS data with SeqMonk


SeqMonk is a program which can analyse large data sets of mapped genomic positions. It is most commonly used to work with data coming from high-throughput sequencing pipelines.

The program allows you to view your reads against an annotated genome and to quantitate and filter your data to let you identify regions of interest. It is a friendly way to explore and analysis very large datasets.

This course provides an introduction to the main features of SeqMonk and will run through the anlaysis of a couple of different datasets to show what sort of analysis options it provides.
