Sample Preparation Nextera XT: Sample Preparation and Usage

Please note: This webinar will not address the Nextera DNA Flex kit. We will have a dedicated webinar early 2018.

llumina Technical Support invites you to join us for a presentation on the Nextera XT workflow. This webinar is targeted to those customers who are planning to work with the Nextera XT Library Preparation kit or are wondering if Nextera XT is the right workflow for their experimental design. We will discuss the following:

- When to choose Nextera XT

- Compatible sample types, important considerations for planning your experiment and what you need to get started

- Walk through of individual protocol steps with best practices

- Discuss Bead-Based Normalization and how to get your libraries ready for sequencing and data analysis

Bring your questions to the discussion or send them in advance to techsupport@illumina.com.

Note: You will be given an option to call in, receive a call back, or stream webinar audio with high speed internet over the computer. Audio quality is best over the telephone. You will need speakers or a headset to hear streaming audio.

Analysis FASTQ Processing Tools for Data Analysis

FASTQ files store biological sequence and quality information, and are key for downstream data analysis pipelines. Several steps are necessary during FASTQ generation to ensure optimal data analysis. This webinar is targeted at new and intermediate users including biologists intending to understand output of basic bioinformatics tools used for processing FASTQs.

We will cover the following topics:
- What is a FASTQ file
- Overview of Illumina FASTQ generation tools
- FASTQ processing such as adapter trimming, masking, quality trimming, read stitching etc
- How to best use FASTQC and FASTQ toolkit BaseSpace Lab apps on BaseSpace Sequence Hub*
- Highlight the differences between Illumina run performance metrics and output generated by third party tools such as FASTQC.
