Using FastQC to check the quality of high throughput sequence
FastQC is an application which reads raw sequence data from high throughput sequencers and runs a set of quality checks to produce a report which allows you to quickly assess the overall quality of your run, and to spot any potential problems or biases.
This video demonstrates the use of FastQC to analyse some sequence data and goes through the results to explain what a good dataset looks like, and what sort of problems you might encounter.
Using IGV Browser for Variants and Next Generation Sequencing (Part 1)
This video demonstrates how to use IGV browser for a custom genome and dataset, how to use the launch tool, how to import a genome and annotations, and how to import a dataset. Also shown: how to navigate, search, and annotate regions of interest.
