This thread will be a growing list of advanced topics which may add some bioinformatic depth to your project! If you would like Ali or I to host a round table discussion in-depth on one of this topics, give it a like!
(Also, since I’m the one posting these topics and I don’t know much about Ali’s work, some descriptions may seem lacking, so I apologize. If you want more details about any topic, let me know and I can get more information from Ali!)
Please feel free to propose your own topics!
If you’re interested in just exploring possible avenues, check out The Broad Institute! They’re a research institution located in Boston and they have a ton of resources for learning about cutting edge methods. They also have developed many common bioinformatics tools and host many useful public datasets like GATK and IGV.
Here’s a link to their YouTube where they have recordings of seminars and some tutorials on novel research discoveries and methods.
Fun Fact: (Can you tell I really like the Broad?) The founding director and former president of the Broad, Eric Lander, is now the Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy!
The following link is another good resource to learn more about Next Generation Sequencing analysis. This webpage contains a bunch of workshop materials and tutorials created by the Harvard Chan School of Public Health.
