Analysis of data from high-throughput molecular biology experiments – 7,5 hp

7.5hp starting 20 January 2014 and finishing 21 March.

The course will cover how to analyze (i) next/now generation sequencing data (e.g., assembly, RNA-seq, ChIP-seq) and (ii) mass spectrometry data (e.g., peptide identification, peptide quantification, post-translational modifications).

There are 11 lectures, 4 computer exercises, and one project. The project is done in groups of 2 or 3 students, with real data and will be presented in poster format at a “poster session” towards the end of the course. The official course plans are available here:

If you’re interested in taking this course, first talk to your supervisor to find out if it fits into your course package, and then email a short motivation (1/2 A4 page)  of why you would like to participate. Please note that the number of participants is limited. Also, note that the time is very short – we need your application at the very latest Friday 17 January.

The course is given in collaboration with Science for Life Laboratory and the national infrastructure in next-generation sequencing, NGI National Genomics Infrastructure.

Lectures and computer exercises are held at the AlbaNova and SciLifeLab Stockholm campuses.

Welcome with your application!
