RNA-seq Bioinformatics – A Practical Introduction

Mapping, Visualization, Basic Analyses

May 13th – 14th 2013, Leipzig, Germany

Scope and Topics

The purpose of this workshop is to get a deeper understanding in High-Throughput Sequencing (HTS) with a special focus on bioinformatics issues. Advantages and disadvantages of current sequencing machines and their implications on data analysis will be discovered. The participants will be trained on understanding their own HTS data, finding potential problems/errors and finally start writing their own pipelines. In the course we will use a real-life RNA-seq dataset from the current market leader Illumina.

All analyses will be performed using cloud services. By saving their final cloud-images, the participants will be able to reuse all tools/pipelines and to continue their analyses after the workshop(platform independently: Windows, Mac OS, Linux).

This course will be limited to 15 participants, ideally with similar knowledge base, to allow personal assistance and efficient learning. After registration, participants will be selected on the basis of their background and in order of incoming registrations.
