Overview

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. 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.

Audience

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. Familiarity with the technology and biological use cases of high throughput sequencing is required, as is some experience with R/Bioconductor.

Outcomes

After this course you should be able to:

  • Understand the advantages and limitations of the high-throughput assays presented
  • Assess the quality of your datasets
  • Understand the difference between short read aligners
  • Perform alignment and peak calling of ChIP-seq datasets
  • Perform alignment and quantification of expression of RNA-seq datasets
