A national course open for PhD students, postdocs, researchers and other employees in need of bioinformatics skills within all Swedish universities.
Application open: July 21
Application deadline: September 22
Confirmation to accepted students: September 29
Responsible teachers: Johan Reimegård
If you don’t receive information according to the dates above, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
A course fee of 1000 SEK will be invoiced to accepted participants (includes the study material, coffee, lunches and course dinner).
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.
Topics covered will include:
· Gene and isoform detection using short RNA-seq reads
· Gene and isoform detection using long RNA-seq reads
· Gene and isoform detection combining RNA-seq data with other data sources
· Quality assessment of RNA-seq data
· Differential expression analysis using RNA-seq data on multiple cells
· Downstream analysis after identifying differentially expressed genes.
Due to space constraints for the computer exercises, there are a maximum number of allowed participants. If we receive more applications, participants will be selected based on several criteria. Selection criteria include correct entry requirements, motivation to attend the course as well as gender and geographical balance.
