— filed under:

Summary

!! THE COURSE IS FULL !!
 
You may still sign up on the waiting list via this link, should there be any openings. Do not sign up via any other links on this page, they will be ignored.
 
This three-day workshop is focused on analysis of RNA-seq and ChIP-seq data, using R/Bioconductor, Galaxy and other open-source tools.
 
It is aimed at graduate students and other researchers who are using, or planning to use, RNASeq or ChIP-Seq methods as part of their research. The course will focus on hands-on training in using modern data analysis methods.

What will I learn?
Brief lectures will illustrate the underlying principles and assumptions of relevant methods, and give insight into how biological knowledge can be generated from RNA-seq and ChIP-seq experiments. The emphasis is on practical exercises where participants analyze RNA-seq and ChIP-seq data under the guidance of the lecturers and teaching assistants. 

What will it cover?
The course covers experimental design, core concepts and statistical analysis of RNA-Seq and ChIP-Seq data ; participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems. The workshop will be hands-on, and you are required to bring your own laptop!
 
Topics include: alignment, quality control, visualisation, abundance estimation, differential expression, enrichment analysis and peak calling, and statistical analysis using R/Bioconductor.

Place

University of Bergen, Bergen, Norway

Prerequisites

We require that participants are familiar with the technology and biological use cases of high throughput sequencing. In addition, we expect that you have had some exposure to a linux environment, and knowledge of any programming language, while not essential, would be greatly beneficial.

For this reason, we strongly recommend anyone planning to participate in this NGS workshop to also register for the Software Carpentry Workshop in Bergen, held April 23-24th 2014. Please register for the Software Carpentry workshop here.

Participants must bring a laptop with at least 40 Gb free space, and some specific software installed. Specific information will follow to accepted participants.

Organizers

Elixir Norway and the Department of Informatics, University of Bergen. Course instructors are: David Fredman, Kanthida Kusonmano, and Kjell Petersen
