Genomic Data Visualization in Python - From deep sequencing to insights

Genomic Data Visualization in Python - From deep sequencing to insights | Best | Scoop.it

Data comes out of the sequencer usually as fastq files which we align to the reference genome using a particular aligner (the software that will map the short reads to the reference). Once the alignment is done, two types of files can be generated, a SAM file (the alignment) and its binary version the BAM file (used in this tutorial here).

 

The data consist of list of bam files (one bam file per subject studied, let’s say a tissue for example), and an interval file in a bed format (listing the amplicon regions). Once these are generated, we need to visualize what we have to answer a number of questions such as:

  • what is the coverage of the sequencing
  • how are the short reads distributed across the genome ?
  • is the coverage across all amplicon regions equally distributed ?
  • in what specific amplicon region we see a lot of coverage in comparison to the others
  • can we cluster tissues per coverage ?
  • etc ..

The tutorial shows how to answer these questions and what can be done in python.

We are probably living in the most defining period of human history. The period when computing moved from large mainframes to PCs to cloud. But what makes it defining is not what has happened, but what is coming our way in years to come. What makes this period exciting for some one like me is the democratization of the tools and techniques, which followed the boost in computing.

Analyzing Maps to Better Understand Global Current Events and History

Analyzing Maps to Better Understand Global Current Events and History | Best | Scoop.it

Maps tell stories about natural and human geography and geopolitics, whether by displaying the shapes of landforms and locations of cities or by highlighting global fashion trends or the routes of explorers.


But many students get overwhelmed by their own unfamiliarity with geography or by what might seem like an overload of information. Just like any other kind of visual thinking, learning to read maps accurately and with confidence takes practice. The authors of these lessons provide strategies to help students gain that confidence so they can interpret even the most complex historical or current maps. They also suggest ways for using current events maps as a tool to better understand both history and what’s going on in the world today.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, January 16, 10:08 AM

Many of the more fortunate students (access to portable electronic devices, multi-car families with parents who drive them around, etc.) are actually worse off in map reading skills in part because they have never needed to develop a mental map and are not adept at navigating their neighborhoods (in the last few generations most and the range that part).  When these children become drivers, they are unable to navigate without GPS devices, but they still need to learn map reading skills. They are convinced that their apps can do all the work and that an old fashioned paper map is outdated technology, but their spatial thinking skills become atrophied. Spatial skills are crucial for understanding the world as a global citizen, to understand your local environs and for making scientific discoveries.  So teach a kid how to read a map...the sooner the better.
