Next Generation Sequencing data analysis
Prerequisites

Tue 17 Mar - Fri 20 Mar 2015

Description

This course provides an introduction to next generation sequencing (NGS) data analysis methodologies. Lectures will give insight into how biological knowledge can be generated from RNA-seq, ChIP-seq and DNA-seq experiments and illustrate different ways of analyzing such data. Practicals will consist of computer exercises that will enable the participants to apply statistical methods to the analysis of RNA-seq, ChIP-seq and DNA-seq data under the guidance of the lecturers and teaching assistants. It is aimed at researchers who are applying or planning to apply NGS technologies and bioinformatics methods in their research.

The timetable for this event can be found here.

Prerequisites

The course will include an introduction to Unix and R but to get the most out of the course we suggest acquiring:

  • Basic experience of command line UNIX
  • Sufficient UNIX experience might be obtained from one of the many UNIX tutorials available online.
  • Basic knowledge of the R syntax
  • For a real beginner's introduction into R see here. More advanced R instructions can be found at Quick-R or An Introduction to R
