NBIC and partners LUMC, AMC and EMC will organize a 3-day course on RNA-seq data analysis from 15 - 17 October 2012. This is an expert course for people with experience in NGS and a follow-up course on the general NBIC NGS data analysis course (which will be given from 11-13 September 2012 in Rotterdam.) The course will consist of seminars and hands-on Galaxy and R practicals and will focus on data preprocessing, quality control, and statistical methods for detection of differential gene expression. 

Course topics: 

  • RNA-seq experimental approaches 
  • Alignment and de novo assembly
  • Statistics for differential gene expression 
  • eQTL analysis and allele specific expression
  • Software for RNA-seq data analysis 

Target audience

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. 

Registration for this course has been closed. Please register here for the next edition (date t.b.a.) For additional information about this course and other (NGS) courses of NBIC check out the NBIC PhD School portfolio.
