What is this course about? The Genomics of Gene Expression RNA-seq course has been designed to provide the basic understanding and the execution skills to perform RNA-seq analysis at the highest quality standards. The course consists both of theory and practical sessions and concludes with a full practical day where a complete analysis pipeline will be run by students using the knowledge and tools learnt during the course.
How is the course scheduled? In a 5-days session.
Who is the target audience? The course is targeted to students and researchers with low or no previous experience in RNA-seq data analysis and includes a parallel session on either the NGS underlying biology or basic programming to cover the needs of both biologists and computer scientists working on RNA-seq.
Why attending this course? RNA-Seq data from next generation sequencing assays allows the study of genome-wide gene expression data at an unprecedented level of detail. However, analysing and understanding such expression data is not an easy task. Data analysis is still a major bottleneck for many researchers which are still applying inadequate statistical methods for the interpretation of their transcriptomic results. The aim of this course is to familiarize the students with the latest analysis methodologies and to provide hands-on training on the analytical approaches implemented in high-performance computing packages. Lectures and hands-on sessions are taught in the facilities of the CIPF, which provide the ideal environment for the organization of bioinformatic courses.
What else? Social activities are organised during the course to favour networking and exchange of experiences among the students, as well as to promote a fruitful dialog between teachers and students.
