The bioinformatics chat is a podcast about computational biology, bioinformatics, and next generation sequencing.
The bioinformatics chat is produced by Roman Cheplyaka.
#11 Collective cell migration with Linus Schumacher

#8 Perfect k-mer hashing in Sailfish
August 5, 2017 | show notes
The original version of Sailfish, an RNA-Seq quantification tool, used minimal perfect hash functions to replace k-mers with unique integers. (The current version appears to be using a Cuckoo hashmap instead.)
This is my attempt to explain how a minimal perfect hash function could be built. The algorithm described here is not exactly the same as the one Sailfish used, but it follows the same idea.
#7 Metagenomics and Kraken
July 9, 2017 | show notes
What is metagenomics and how is it different from phylotyping?
What is Kraken and how can it be faster than BLAST?
I’ve got the answers!
#6 Allele-specific expression
June 25, 2017 | show notes
I talk about allele-specific expression: why it arises and how it can be reliably detected.
#5 Relative data analysis and propr with Thom Quinn
June 10, 2017 | show notes
In this episode, Thom Quinn and I explore different ways to transform and analyze relative data arising in genomics.
We also discuss propr, Thom’s R package to compute various proportionality measures.
#4 ChIP-seq and GenoGAM with Georg Stricker and Julien Gagneur
May 29, 2017 | show notes
In this episode I meet with Georg Stricker and Julien Gagneur from the Technical University of Munich to discuss ChIP-seq data analysis and their tool, GenoGAM.
