About the Webinar:
Hi-C has transformed our understanding of 3D genome architecture, revealing how structural changes influence gene regulation and disease mechanisms. Yet, the rich data landscape Hi-C unlocks can seem intimidating — where do you even begin with Hi-C data analysis? If Hi-C bioinformatics feels like a black box, this webinar is for you!
In this one-hour webinar, hear from an expert Hi-C bioinformatician as we demystify Hi-C data analysis. Take a journey through data processing, downstream analysis, visualization and interpretation.
What You Will Learn
- Hi-C method: A quick introduction to the Hi-C method and how it is used in human disease research.
- Pipeline overview: An overview of a typical bioinformatics pipeline for genome-wide Hi-C data. Alignment, filtering, binning, normalization — we’ll talk through what happens at each step and what you should pay attention to.
- Data visualization and interpretation: Interpreting the Hi-C contact matrix and heatmap, as well as identifying compartments, TADs, and loops.
- Tool selection: There are so many tools out there. Which do you choose? We will round out the webinar with an overview of popular Hi-C tools and pipelines.
