Applications for this course are no longer being accepted.

This course is aimed at PhD students and post-doctoral researchers who are applying or planning to apply high throughput sequencing technologies and bioinformatics methods in their research.

It covers next-generation sequencing applications and data analysis of RNA-Seq, DNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq and DNA methylation sequencing experiments. Some familiarity with the sequencing technology and the biological use cases of high throughput sequencing is a plus. Talks and practical exercises are both part of this course. Practicals are conducted under Linux using open-source next-generation sequencing analysis tools as well as Linux shell and R scripts.

Aims: Talks and practicals to get acquainted with NGS technologies and NGS data analysis.

Course Topics: NGS data analysis, DNA-Seq, RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, DNA methylation, de novo assembly, variant calling
