Finding and accessing human genome data
New

Mon 13 Mar 2017

Description

Researchers rely on acquiring external data to validate, benchmark and supplement research findings. Funders require researchers to make their datasets accessible for further reuse.

The goal of this workshop is to bring to the fore existing challenges with genomic data access and reuse. We will introduce a number of tools and resources to simplify #dataaccess and #datasharing.

Objectives

After this course you should be able to:

  • Find all genomics data available for a particular condition (e.g. disease, healthy state, controls, validation studies)
  • Understand the most suitable genomics repository for your needs
  • Submit data to genomics repositories following best practices
Aims

During this workshop you will learn about:

  • Current challenges in data sharing, focusing especially on researchers studying human genomic datasets
  • A number of tools and resources for finding, accessing and sharing genomic data: Repositive, EGA (European Genome Phenome Archive), dbGaP, GigaScience, Nature Scientific Data and figshare
  • Best practices for using data to power hypothesis testing and maximising research impact
