Participants for the RNA-seq course should preferably have participated in the general NGS course or otherwise have demonstrated hands-on experience with NGS data analysis. The course is aimed at PhD students and post-docs, but scientific programmers and data analysts with a background in biology and bioinformatics may also attend.
NBIC and partners LUMC, AMC and EMC are organising a 3-day course on RNA-seq data analysis. This is an expert course for people with experience in NGS and a follow-up course on the general NBIC NGS data analysis course. The course consist of seminars and hands-on Galaxy and R practicals and focuses on data preprocessing, quality control, and statistical methods for detection of differential gene expression.
- RNA-seq experimental approaches
- Alignment and de novo assembly
- Statistics for differential gene expression
- QTL analysis and allele specific expression
- Software for RNA-seq data analysis
The complete course programme and additional information will be made available here.
