Top 3 Most Viewed Tutorials from Golden Helix

Tutorials are ever-present in the world today, and for good reason. Why struggle through a complicated process yourself, when there is already a guide established to assist? While no one would suggest that a tutorial is the only way to complete a project, it is certainly a nice starting point.

This rings true with genetic software as well. There are many ways to analyze DNA-Seq and SNP data, but a starting point is helpful. With that in mind, Golden Helix has curated tutorials to help researchers with their analysis, on levels varying from beginner to advanced.

Below are the top 3 most viewed tutorials from Golden Helix:

3. Analyzing RNA Sequence Data

This tutorial is designed to systematically introduce you to a number of techniques for analyzing your RNA-Seq or other high throughput sequencing data output within SVS. It is not meant to replicate all the workflows you might use in a complete analysis, but instead touch on a sampling of the more typical scenarios you may come across in your own studies.

2. LD and Haplotype Analysis

This tutorial leads you through various LD and haplotype analyses in SVS 8. For demonstration purposes, a simulated dataset is used consisting of actual Affymetrix 500K genotypes from the four HapMap populations (Phase II) mapped to the hg19 Human reference build GRCh_37, simulated case/control status and simulated quantitative phenotype.

1. SNP Genome-Wide Association

This tutorial is designed to systematically introduce you to a number of techniques for genome-wide association studies. It is not meant to replicate all the workflows you might use in a complete analysis, but instead touch on a sampling of the more typical scenarios you may come across in your own studies.

The genotype data included is a portion of a public GWAS dataset from the Gene Expression Omnibus database, as well as 270 HapMap samples. There is a population spreadsheet that identifies the HapMap subpopulation and the study data. Both studies were run on the Affymetrix 500K genotyping array. All phenotype data is simulated.
