About the course

This is a 18 hours web training delivered in 3-days:

  • 6 hours webinar per day
  • Morning session from 9:00 am to 12 am

This is an advanced course that covers Torrent Variant Caller (TVC) in depth. We will learn how to work with the TVC, how to interpret the output of the algorithm, configure parameters and troubleshoot difficult cases.
The course is heavily hands-on with more than 30 exercises. We will spend most of the time running the TVC on sample datasets, assessing the results, adjusting the parameters and discussing example cases of variant detection situations that may occur in analysis of real Ion Torrent™ data.

Who should attend and course pre-requisites

This course is for anyone who wants to learn in greater detail how to use the TVC. You should have some experience with Ion Torrent™ data analysis, a good understanding of Primary Analysis workflow and Ion Torrent Suite™ Software. We will do a lot of TVC runs and parameter adjustments, however, the command line or programming skills are not required. Therefore, the course is well suited for biologists and clinicians who want to learn about the TVC by practice.
