October 20th - 21st 2014
The purpose of this workshop is to get a deeper understanding of the use of bisulfite-treated DNA in order to analyze the epigenetic layer of DNA methylation. Advantages and disadvantages of the so-called 'bisulfite sequencing' and its implications on data analyses will be covered. The participants will be trained on understand bisulfite-treated NGS data, detect potential problems/errors and finally implement their own pipelines. After this course they will be able to analyze DNA methylation and create ready-to-publish graphics.
By the end of this workshop the participants will:
We are very excited to announce that the participants of this workshop will work with the newly developed 'Bisulfite Analysis Toolkit' (BAT). This open-source toolkit was developed at the Univerity of Leipzig and provides very powerful tools for the analysis and visualization of bisulfite-treated DNA-Seq experiments. Every participant will get a free copy of the toolkit together with the course materials.
Helene Kretzmer (University of Leipzig) started working on NGS data in 2011. At an early stage she specialized in DNA methylation analyses and is responsible for these within the MMML-Seq study of the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC).
Christian Otto (University of Leipzig) is one of the developers of the bisulfite-treated read mapping tool segemehl and is an expert on implementing efficient algorithms for HTS data analyses.
David Langenberger (ecSeq Bioinformatics) started working with small non-coding RNAs in 2006. Since 2009 he specialized on NGS technolgies. He has been part of several large NGS projects, for example the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC).
