Next-generation sequencing hands-on course: March 12-14

Summary

The Bioinformatics core facility and the Norwegian Microarray Consortium arrange an introductory hands-on course in bioinformatic analysis of next-generation sequencing data.

Description

The participants will be trained in subjects like
 
- understanding different data formats from various sequencing platforms
- mapping reads to the genome using different state-of-the-art tools
- annotation of mapped reads to coding regions.
- statistical analysis of small RNA-seq and mRNA-seq
- plotting and visualizing results
- basic understanding of Unix necessary to perform the analysis
- basic use of some Galaxy and Hyperbrowser tools (http://hyperbrowser.uio.no/hb/)

The course will cover two real test cases using small RNA-seq and mRNA-seq data, in addition to a thorough introduction to challenges and possibilities in next-generation sequencing.

Place

The University of Oslo, Ole Johan Dahl building

Prerequisites

Since this is an introductory course, we do not require any prior knowledge in the subject. It is an advantage to be able to install/compile programs and run simple commands using a terminal, but you will get the basic training needed to benefit from all parts of the course.  However, we require that all participants bring their own laptop with a unix/unix-based OS (linux, mac).

Organizers

The Oslo node of the Bioinformatics core facility and the Oslo node of the Norwegian Microarray Consortium
