Tutorial: Getting started with NGS data

Getting started with NGS data

  1. Check out the load data page to learn how to load data and the list of supported data formats.
  2. Load the reference genome, typically a FASTA file. For improved speed, you may consider indexing these files
  3. Load a BAM file. This files needs to be sorted and indexed. Full BAM preparation instructions
  4. Create and load a coverage plot. Coverage plots give you a summary view of the sequencing data and are in many cases sufficient
