Whole Exome Sequencing and RNA-sequence data analysis

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.
 
It 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.
 
Target audience:
Graduate students, Postdocs and Staff members from the University of Cambridge and Affiliated Institutions
Graduate students, Postdocs and Staff members from all other external Institutions
 
Format: Presentations and practicals
 
Frequency: A number of times per year
 
Prerequisites:
Basic computing skills
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.
 
 
Directions: The training room is located on the first floor of the Craik-Marshall building.
