EMBL Courses and Conferences during the Coronavirus pandemic
With the onsite programme paused, many of our events are now being offered in virtual formats.
Registration is open as usual for many events, with back-up plans in place to move further courses and conferences online as necessary. Registration fees for any events affected by the COVID-19 disruption are fully refundable.
More information for participants of events at EMBL Heidelberg can be found here.
The aim of this course is to prepare and analyse "bisulfite-free" methylome libraries for Illumina sequencing. We will use a novel enzymatic approach to detect 5-methyl cytosines (5mC's), that results in longer reads and higher coverage of genomic features at lower minimum coverage thresholds when compared to Illumina bisulfite libraries.
This course is directed towards wet-lab biologists, scientists and technicians who want to apply the bisulfite-free method for detecting 5mC's to their samples. Participants will learn the best practice of library preparation and data analysis. Knowledge of next generation sequencing technology is desirable but not essential.
- Enzymatic detection of 5mC's
- Introduction to methylome data analysis
Preparation of methylome libraries using an enzymatic approach. Introduction to data analysis of these libraries.
