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.
Topics covered will include:
NOTE! The ChIP-seq part has been excluded from the course.
Analysis techniques covered will focus mostly on data from the Illumina platform, but we will discuss other sequencing platforms and the advantages and challenges to using their data.
A background in genetics, cell biology, biomedicine, biochemistry, bioinformatics or comparable is desirable
To get the maximum benefit from the course we would like you to
