MDA course on Next Generation Sequencing Data Analysis for Transcriptomics


A five day theoretical and practical course on analysis of Next Generation Sequencing data organized by the Institute of Computational Medicine of the Centro de Investigación Príncipe Felipe (CIPF) in Valencia, the Functional Genomics Node of the Spanish National Bioinformatics Institute (INB) and the CIBERER.


The course is oriented to experimentalists, end-users and PhD students who want to learn about the state-of-the-art in transcriptomics data analysis methodologies. Next generation sequencing data 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. Topics include quality control assessment, mapping, analysis of biases and errors, visualization of NGS data, functional annotation, differential expression and time-series analysis, functional enrichment and miRNAseq, Chip-seq and Methyl-seq analysis. Students will acquire the necessary skills for analyzing their own data using the most advanced software 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.
