Next-generation sequencing hands-on course

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 (Illumina Solexa, Roche 454, Solid)
- mapping reads to the genome using different state-of-the-art tools
- annotation of mapped reads to coding regions.
- statistical analysis of RNA-seq and ChIP-seq data (differentially expressed genes, significantly enriched regions)
- plotting and visualizing results

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

Place

The new research building, Radiumhospitalet, Oslo

Prerequisites

Since this is an introductory course, we do not require any prior knowledge in the subject. However, we assume that all participants are able to install/compile programs and run simple commands using a terminal. If you don't have such competence, we suggest that you team up with a colleague that does.
