EMBO Practical Course: Analysis of High-Throughput Sequencing Data
Oct 29, 2012 - Nov 03, 2012
Event Type: Conference
Location: EMBL-EBI, Hinxton, Nr Cambridge, CB10 1SD, UK
Registration Deadline: Aug 24, 2012
Abstract Submission Deadline: None
Description of event:
This course is aimed at advanced PhD students and post-doctoral researchers who are applying or planning to apply high throughput sequencing technologies and bioinformatics methods in their research.
The aim of this course is to familiarise the participants with advanced data analysis methodologies and provide hands-on training on the latest analytical approaches.
What will I learn?
Lectures will give insight into how biological knowledge can be generated from RNA-seq and ChIP-seq experiments and illustrate different ways of analyzing such data. Practicals will consist of computer exercises that will enable the participants to apply statistical methods to the analysis of RNA-seq and ChIP-seq data under the guidance of the lecturers and teaching assistants.
Familiarity with the technology and biological use cases of high throughput sequencing is required, as is some experience with R/Bioconductor (basic understanding of the R syntax and ability to manipulate R objects) and the Unix/Linux operating system.
What will it cover?
The course covers data analysis of RNA-Seq and ChIP-Seq experiments.
Topics will include: short read alignment using Bowtie/BWA; data handling and visualisation, region identification, differential expression, data quality assessment and statistical analysis, using R/Bioconductor.
Registration and Payment
Registration will be via a selection process therefore applicants should be aware that, in order to be considered for place on this course, they MUST complete the application page as well as submit a short CV, research interests and a letter of support from their supervisor or another senior co-worker. Incomplete applications will NOT be considered. Details of how to submit these extra documents will be provided on your application confirmation email.
Information on how to submit this additional information is contained in your completed application for registration. Application registration closes 24th August 2012 (12:00 midday GMT). There will be a maximum of 40 participants on this course. Successful applicants will be notified by 10 September 2012 and will then be asked to confirm their place on the course by re-registering.
