Rapid improvements in sequencing and array-based platforms are resulting in a flood of diverse genome-wide data, including data from exome and whole-genome sequencing, epigenetic surveys, expression profiling of coding and noncoding RNAs, single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and copy number profiling, and functional assays. Analysis of these large, diverse data sets holds the promise of a more comprehensive understanding of the genome and its relation to human disease. Experienced and knowledgeable human review is an essential component of this process, complementing computational approaches. This calls for efficient and intuitive visualization tools able to scale to very large data sets and to flexibly integrate multiple data types, including clinical data. However, the sheer volume and scope of data pose a significant challenge to the development of such tools.

As our ability to generate sequencing data continues to increase, data analysis is replacing data generation as the rate-limiting step in genomics studies. Here we provide a guide to genomic data visualization tools that facilitate analysis tasks by enabling researchers to explore, interpret and manipulate their data, and in some cases perform on-the-fly computations. We will discuss graphical methods designed for the analysis of de novo sequencing assemblies and read alignments, genome browsing...

There is growing recognition that mammalian cells produce many thousands of large intergenic transcripts. However, the functional significance of these transcripts has been particularly controversial. Although there are some well-characterized examples, most (>95%) show little evidence of evolutionary conservation and have been suggested to represent transcriptional noise. Here we report a new approach to identifying large non-coding RNAs using chromatin-state maps to discover discrete transcrip...

Human cancer cells typically harbour multiple chromosomal aberrations, nucleotide substitutions and epigenetic modifications that drive malignant transformation. The Cancer Genome Atlas ( TCGA) pilot project aims to assess the value of large- scale multi- dimensional analysis of these molecular characteristics in human cancer and to provide the data rapidly to the research community. Here we report the interim integrative analysis of DNA copy number, gene expression and DNA methylation aberratio...

The emergence of high-throughput next-generation sequencing technologies (e.g., 454 Life Sciences [Roche], Illumina sequencing [formerly Solexa sequencing]) has dramatically sped up whole-genome de novo sequencing and resequencing. While the low cost of these sequencing technologies provides an unparalleled opportunity for genome-wide polymorphism discovery, the analysis of the new data types and huge data volume poses formidable informatics challenges for base calling, read alignment and genome...

Summary: We introduce a new visual analytics tool named MapView to facilitate the representation of large-scale short reads alignment data and genetic variation analysis. MapView can handle hundreds of millions of short reads on a desktop computer with limited memory. It supports a compact alignment view for both single-end and paired end short reads, multiple navigation and zoom modes and multithread processing. Moreover, MapView offers automated genetic variation detection. MapView has been us...

Motivation: The advent of high-throughput sequencing (HTS) technologies has made it affordable to sequence many individuals’ genomes. Simultaneously the computational analysis of the large volumes of data generated by the new sequencing machines remains a challenge. While a plethora of tools are available to map the resulting reads to a reference genome, and to conduct primary analysis of the mappings, it is often necessary to visually examine the results and underlying data to confirm predictio...

Summary The Cancer Genome Atlas Network recently cataloged recurrent genomic abnormalities in glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). We describe a robust gene expression-based molecular classification of GBM into Proneural, Neural, Classical, and Mesenchymal subtypes and integrate multidimensional genomic data to establish patterns of somatic mutations and DNA copy number. Aberrations and gene expression of EGFR , NF1 , and PDGFRA/IDH1 each define the Classical, Mesenchymal, and Proneural subtypes, resp...

The well-established inaccuracy of purely computational methods for annotating genome sequences necessitates an interactive tool to allow biological experts to refine these approximations by viewing and independently evaluating the data supporting each annotation. Apollo was developed to meet this need, enabling curators to inspect genome annotations closely and edit them. FlyBase biologists successfully used Apollo to annotate the Drosophila melanogaster genome and it is increasingly being used...

Abstract The dramatic fall in the cost of DNA sequencing has revolutionized the experiments within reach in the life sciences. Here we provide an introduction for the domains of analyses possible using high-throughput sequencing, distinguishing between "counting" and "reading" applications. We discuss the steps in designing a high-throughput sequencing experiment, introduce the most widely used applications, and describe basic sequencing concepts. We review the various software programs availabl...

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) wird immer haufiger in der Humangenetik eingesetzt. Die Analyse der anfallenden Datenmengen birgt allerdings andere und grosere Herausforderungen als bisher eingesetzte Verfahren. In diesem Artikel werden einige Grundlagen, die dem Verstandnis der anfallenden Daten und Analyseschritte beim NGS dienen sollen, beschrieben. Ein besonderer Schwerpunkt ist dabei die Qualitatskontrolle.

Abstract Regulatory and signaling networks coordinate the enormously complex interactions and processes that control cellular processes (such as metabolism and cell division), coordinate response to the environment, and carry out multiple cell decisions (such as development and quorum sensing). Regulatory network inference is the process of inferring these networks, traditionally from microarray data but increasingly incorporating other measurement types such as proteomics, ChIP-seq, metabolomic...

In a clinical setting, next-generation sequencing (NGS) approaches for the enrichment and resequencing of DNA targets may have limitations in throughput, cost, or accuracy. We evaluated an NGS workflow for targeted DNA sequencing for mutation detection. Targeted sequence data of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, generated using a PCR-based, multiplexed NGS approach using the SOLiD 4 (n = 24) and Ion Torrent PGM (n = 20) next-generation sequencers, were evaluated against sequence data obtained by Sanger...

Leptosphaeria maculans ‘brassicae’ is a damaging fungal pathogen of canola (Brassica napus), causing lesions on cotyledons and leaves, and cankers on the lower stem. A related species, L. biglobosa ‘canadensis’, colonises cotyledons but causes few stem cankers. We describe the complement of genes encoding carbohydrate-active enzymes (CAZys) and peptidases of these fungi, as well as of four related plant pathogens. We also report dual-organism RNA-seq transcriptomes of these two Leptosphaeria spe...

A wide repertoire of bioinformatics applications exist for next-generation sequencing data analysis; however, certain requirements of the clinical molecular laboratory limit their use: i) comprehensive report generation, ii) compatibility with existing laboratory information systems and computer operating system, iii) knowledgebase development, iv) quality management, and v) data security. SeqReporter is a web-based application developed using ASP.NET framework version 4.0. The client-side was d...

Abstract Transcription factors (TFs) are key proteins that decode the information in our genome to express a precise and unique set of proteins and RNA molecules in each cell type in our body. These factors play a pivotal role in all biological processes, including the determination of a cell's fate during development and the maintenance of a cell's physiological function. To achieve this, a TF binds to specific DNA sequences in the noncoding part of the genome, recruits chromatin modifiers and ...
