Courses


SciLifeLab offer training and workshops for current and potential SciLifeLab infrastructure users, such as PhD students, postdocs, investigators and other employees within all Swedish universities.

The educational activities cover knowledge and understanding about the advanced techniques and data analysis methods available at the SciLifeLab technical platforms. In general, they are aimed for researches who have not previously been aware of – or lacked access to – the technologies SciLifeLab provides. You can learn how to benefit from SciLifeLab’s scientific resources, how to plan your projects and how to analyze your data. The workshops are usually shorter than other educational activities and more focused on a single subject. Please note that The SciLifeLab The Svedberg Seminar series is also a research course for graduate students.


2019-02-04 - 2019-02-08, Course | Uppsala

Introduction to Bioinformatics using NGS data, Uppsala

The course will provide an entry-level introduction to a wide range of analytical techniques for massively parallel sequencing, including basic Linux commands. We will pair lectures on the theory of analysis algorithms with practical computational exercises demonstrating the use of common tools for analyzing data from each of several common sequencing study designs. Application deadline: December 3

2019-02-04 - 2019-02-06, Course | Solna

Single cell RNA sequencing data analysis

This course will cover the basic steps in single cell RNAseq (scRNAseq) processing and data analysis. Topics covered will include an overview of the current scRNAseq techniques, overview of pipelines for processing, quality control and analysis tools. Application deadline: January 20, 2019

2019-03-25 - 2019-03-26, Course | Stockholm

Antibody based technologies

The workshop will focus on antibody based technologies and describe the possibilities of using these technologies within the facilities at SciLifeLab. Lectures will cover both theoretical and more practical aspects of the different applications. Application deadline: February 14, 2019
