Do you think your skills in sequencing data analysis could need some improvement? Then our NGS workshop series taking place in October 2014 might be interesting for you. As usual, these hands-on workshops have a strong focus on practical experience meaning that you analyze typical NGS datasets. Our trainers will directly interact with you and give valuable feedback.
Our workshop series 2014 will consist of four separate courses:
For beginners, we have the RNA-seq Bioinformatics: A Practical Introduction course which will cover all the basics required for NGS analysis like file formats, quality control, read processing and read alignment, all based on an example RNA-seq dataset.
We are very happy that we could convince Dr. Michael Hackenberg, the developer of one of the most-used microRNA gene prediction tools for small RNA-seq data (miRanalyzer) to join us for our microRNA workshop. This course titled microRNA Analysis Using High-Throughput Sequencing will cover the essential steps of small RNA-seq analysis from microRNA prediction to extensive downstream analyses.
We also have a workshop on DNA Methylation Analysi where Helene Kretzschmer will show you how she took care of her data in the MMML-Seq study of the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC).
Lastly, there is the workshop Discovering standard and non-standard RNA transcripts where Gero Doose will train you on advanced methods of transcriptome analysis. Gero has a strong background in transcriptome analysis, finding different isoforms, fusion-transcripts or circularized RNAs.
There is an early-bird discount which applies until end of april.
