Description

The Power of RNA-seq is an introductory course for PhD researchers who want to use RNA-seq in their research project.

topics:

  • steps in RNA-seq data analysis (data quality control, transcript identification, quantification, differential  expression, interpretation, etc.)
  • experiental design
  • sequencing requirements
  • downstream applications

format:

  • 3-days full-day course
  • lectures in the mornings
  • All afternoons are hands-on computer workshops

target audience:

Researchers in Life Sciences ('biologists') starting with application of NextGen Sequencing & RNA-seq.

  • No previous NGS experience is needed
  • No command line or Linux computer experience is required
  • No R-experience is required

(participants will benefit from experience in any of these fields, however!)

Registration is open now.
