WORKSHOP: Variant calling in humans, animals and plants with Galaxy https://dresa.org.au/materials/workshop-variant-calling-in-humans-animals-and-plants-with-galaxy-767f1816-1c06-478c-adf4-90b3b2d32a9c This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons workshop ‘Variant calling in humans, animals and plants with Galaxy’. This workshop took place on 25 May 2021. Variant calling in polyploid organisms, including humans, plants and animals, can help determine single or multi-variant contributors to a phenotype. Further, sexual reproduction (as compared to asexual) combines variants in a novel manner; this can be used to determine previously unknown variant - phenotype combinations but also to track lineage and lineage associated traits (GWAS studies), that all rely on highly accurate variant calling. The ability to confidently call variants in polyploid organisms is highly dependent on the balance between the frequency of variant observations against the background of non-variant observations, and even further compounded when one considers multi-variant positions within the genome. These are some of the challenges that will be explored in the workshop. In this online workshop we focused on the tools and workflows available for variant calling in polyploid organisms in Galaxy Australia. The workshop provided opportunities for hands-on experience using Freebayes for variant calling and SnpEff and GEMINI for variant annotation. The workshop made use of data from a case study on diagnosing a genetic disease however the tools and workflows are equally applicable to other polyploid organisms and biological questions. Access to all of the tools covered in this workshop was via Galaxy Australia, an online platform for biological research that allows people to use computational data analysis tools and workflows without the need for programming experience.
