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 to understand bisulfite-treated NGS data, to detect potential problems/errors and finally to 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:
This workshop has been redesigned and adapted to the needs of beginners in the field of NGS bioinformatics. The workshop comprises three course modules.
|Introduction to NGS data analysis|
|Linux for bioinformatics|
|Day 2 and 3|
|DNA Methylation Analysis|
Helene Kretzmer (University of Leipzig) is working on DNA methylation analyses using high-throughput sequencing since 2011. She is responsible for the bioinformatic analysis of MMML-Seq study of the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC).
Dr. Christian Otto (CCR Bio-IT) is one of the developers of the bisulfite read mapping tool segemehl and is an expert on implementing efficient algorithms for HTS data analyses.
Dr. David Langenberger (ecSeq Bioinformatics) started working with small non-coding RNAs in 2006. Since 2009 he uses HTS technolgies to investigate these short regulatory RNAs as well as other targets. He has been part of several large HTS projects, for example the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC).
Dr. Mario Fasold (ecSeq Bioinformatics) has developed several bioinformatics tools such as the Bioconductor package AffyRNADegradation and the Larpack program package. Since 2011 he is specialized in the field of HTS data analysis and helped analysing sequecing data of several large consortium projects.
