ESHG: Using the Ensembl VEP for analysing variants in rare and common disease

Course Details

Lead Trainer

Event Date
  ESHG – Swedish Exhibition & Congress Center, Gothenburg
The Ensembl Variant Effect Predictor (VEP) allows analysis of variants from sequencing experiments to determine the likely effect of the variants on genes, allowing for the prioritisation for further experiments. This workshop will familiarise the audience with general usage of the VEP, as well as two specialised use-cases: analysis of a short list of variants from GWAS to identify likely indirect effects on genes and analysis of genome-wide data to identify variants likely to cause rare disease.
