In this workshop, attendees will get a broad overview of experimental design criteria for successful sequencing experiments of a number of types. High-throughput genome sequencing is a very powerful and versatile tool that is being adopted by a wide range of new researchers as costs drop. However, no technology or analysis can save a poorly designed or underpowered experiment. We will discuss important questions that should be addressed prior to generating sequencing data, the approximate amounts and type of sequencing needed for reasonably powered experiments, how to think about what kind of sequencing to do or whether to sequence, and basic analysis needs for different types of experiments. This course is primarily for researchers new to sequencing or project managers and analysts who are not familiar with the upstream considerations of the experiments they manage and analyze.
