SS1 Tools for Next Generation Sequencing data analysis

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) is a broadly used term to describe the most recent sequencing technologies, including Illumina, Roche/454, Ion Torrent, SOLiD and Pacific Biosciences. These technologies allow the quick and cost-effective sequencing of DNA and RNA, opening new ways for the study of genomics, transcriptomics, gene expression, and systems biology, among others.

The continuous improvements on those technologies (longer read length, lesser base calling errors, greater throughput, etc.) and the broad application of NGS in many research fields, is producing a continuous increase of data requiring improved bioinformatics tools. Therefore, we invite authors to submit original research, pipelines and review articles on topics helping in the study of NGS data, such as (but not limited to):

  • Tools for data pre-processing (quality control and filtering).
  • Tools for sequence mapping.
  • Tools for de novo assembly.
  • Tools for quality check of sequence assembling.
  • Tools for the analysis of genomic data: identification and annotation of genomic variants (variant calling, variant annotation).
  • Tools for functional annotation: identification of domains, orthologues, genetic markers, controlled vocabulary (GO, KEGG, InterPro,...)
  • Tools for biological enrichment in non-model organisms.
  • Tools for the analysis of transcriptomic data: RNA-Seq analyses (quantification, normalisation, filtering, differential expression) and distinguishing transcripts, alleles and paralogs.
  • Tools for Chip-Seq data.
  • Tools for “big-data” analyses.
  • Tools for handling and editing complex workflows and pipelines.
