Tutorial on the 1000 Genomes Project Data

There will be a (free) tutorial on the 1000 genomes project at this year's ASHG meeting on Wednesday, November 3, 7:00 – 9:30pm. You can register online at the link below. The tutorial will describe the 1000 genomes data, how to access it, and what to do with it. Specifically, the speakers and topics covered are:

1. Introduction
2. Description of the 1000 Genomes data -- Gabor Marth
3. How to access the data -- Steve Sherry
4. How to use the browser -- Paul Flicek
5. Structural variants -- Jan Korbel
6. How to use the data in disease studies -- Jeff Barrett
7. Q&A

Hopefully I'll see some of you there. I'm not sure if imputation is covered in this tutorial. If not, I will cover it here in a future post. I'll soon be using Goncalo Abecasis's 1000 Genomes Imputation Cookbook to impute my own data to the 1kG SNPs, and I'll share any tips I discover along the way.


  1. Thanks, without you I would have missed it...

  2. Hi,

    I would really appreciate a tutorial of imputating 1000G with Affymetrix 500K/SNP5/6 data. And further: how could you combine this with an imputation effort using HapMap r27? So as to obtain not only common but also relatively rare variants.

    That would really be great!

    Always looking forward to your next blog!
