SciLifeLab offer educational courses and workshops for PhD students, postdocs, investigators and other employees within all Swedish universities.

The courses and workshops cover knowledge and understanding about the advanced techniques and data analysis methods available at the SciLifeLab technical platforms. In general the courses are aimed for researches who have not previously been aware of – or lacked access to – the technologies SciLifeLab provides. Via the courses and workshop 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 the courses and more focused on a single subject. Please note that The SciLifeLab The Svedberg Seminar series is also a research course for graduate students.

R Programming Foundations for Life Scientists, 2 hp

The course is addressed to life scientists with little or moderate experience in programming but enthusiastic about learning how to use R to make their work smoother and easier.

2017-11-06 - 2017-11-08, Course | Uppsala

RNA-seq, 1 hp

This course will cover both theoretical and hands-on exposure to current topics in RNA-seq analysis. Lectures from experts in RNA-seq and biostatistics will cover a range of cutting-edge issues in RNA quality control, transcript assembly in model and non-model organisms, differential expression analysis and downstream analysis using other types of data. An extensive case study in the computer lab will familiarize you with concepts of mapping, quality control of your RNA-seq data, de novo assembly, assembly using a reference, differential expression analysis and downstream enrichment analysis.
Application deadline: September 28

Chemical Proteomics 2017, 1 ECTS credit

This course will cover most updated chemical proteomics strategies available for identifying proteome-wide compound-target interactions, which ChemProt provides at the state-of-the-art level.
This course accepts applications until the course is full.

2017-11-15 - 2017-11-17, Course | Uppsala

De novo Genome Assembly, 1 hp

The course will cover assembly of both prokaryotes and eukaryotes (see our sister course in metagenomics for assembly of mixed/environmental samples) and spend a lot of time on learning how to run the analyses in hands-on computer exercises. Applicants will be taken through all steps of a genome assembly project, from the quality assessment of data, through assembly, to validation of assemblies.
The course has a few open spots left for qualified applicants.

Metagenomics, 1 hp

During the three-day SciLifeLab metagenomics course, the participants will be brought up to date with the current state-of-the-art in the rapidly emerging field of environmental genomics, including metagenomics and single cell genomics. The course will focus on computational methods for assembly and functional annotation of environmental genomics data. Application deadline: October 7. but late registrations from qualified applicants will also be considered.

ChIP-seq data analysis, 1 hp

This NBIS course provides a practical introduction to analyzing ChIP-seq data. It is aimed for those already working with NGS data analyses but in need of learning best practice bioinformatics methods for processing and analyses of ChIP-seq data. Upon completion of the course, attentive participants will be able to plan and run most common ChIP-seq data analyses. Application deadline: October 6

2017-11-27 - 2017-12-01, Course | Uppsala

Introduction to Bioinformatics using NGS data, 2 hp

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: October 7
