Description: This course covers state-of-the-art tools and methods for NGS RNA-seq and exome variant data analysis, which are of major relevance in today's genomic and gene expression studies. Further information is available here.

Target audience: The course is oriented to experimental researchers, post-doctoral and PhD students who want to learn about the state-of-the-art of genomic variant and transcriptomics data analysis methodologies and carry out their own analysis.

Duration: 3 days

Format: Presentations and practicals

Frequency: A number of times per year

Prerequisites: Basic computing skills and graduate level in Life Sciences.

Aims: The aim of this course is to familiarize the students with the latest analysis methodologies and to provide hands-on training on the analytical approaches implemented for RNA-seq data and whole exome variant analysis.

Notes: A slightly longer version of this course is regularly offered as a part of "The Gulbenkian Training Programme in Bioinformatics". For further details of how to apply, see:
