RNA-seq and ChIP-seq Data Analysis Course

!! THE COURSE IS FULL !!
 
You may still sign up on the waiting list via this link, should there be any openings. Do not sign up via any other links on this page, they will be ignored.
 
This three-day workshop is focused on analysis of RNA-seq and ChIP-seq data, using R/Bioconductor, Galaxy and other open-source tools.
 
It is aimed at graduate students and other researchers who are using, or planning to use, RNASeq or ChIP-Seq methods as part of their research. The course will focus on hands-on training in using modern data analysis methods.

What will I learn?
Brief lectures will illustrate the underlying principles and assumptions of relevant methods, and give insight into how biological knowledge can be generated from RNA-seq and ChIP-seq experiments. The emphasis is on practical exercises where participants analyze RNA-seq and ChIP-seq data under the guidance of the lecturers and teaching assistants. 

What will it cover?
The course covers experimental design, core concepts and statistical analysis of RNA-Seq and ChIP-Seq data ; participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems. The workshop will be hands-on, and you are required to bring your own laptop!
 
Topics include: alignment, quality control, visualisation, abundance estimation, differential expression, enrichment analysis and peak calling, and statistical analysis using R/Bioconductor.
