Upcoming RNA-Seq Workshops

These courses combine lessons and hands-on training and it is particularly suitable for biologists who are new to Next Generation Sequencing technology.

The aims of the courses are:

  1. facilitate the interaction between wet biologists and bionformaticians
  2. providing  to biologists simplified tools for basic RNA-seq analysis.
  3. providing bioinformaticians, which are entering in the world of NGS data analysis, tips and tricks to analyse RNAseq data.
  An introductory course to RNA-seq
(Centro di Biotecnologie Molecolari, Via Nizza 52, Torino, Italy, 17-19 March 2015) 
 An advance course to RNA-seq
(Centro di Biotecnologie Molecolari, Via Nizza 52, Torino, Italy, 14-16 April 2015)
 This hands-on course is organized by B&Gu with guest speakers from Illumina . The course is suitable for biologists who are new to RNA-seq technology. Additionally, if you have analyzed gene expression data from microarrays and would now like to do projects using RNA-seq technology, then this workshop will enable you to gather information on the critical issue on RNA-seq from sample prep to data analysis.
The course is based on the use of Bioconductor open-source software. However, R coding skill is not required since all the analyses are done using oneChannelGUI, a graphical interface to Bioconductor tools, designed for life scientists who are not familiar with R language.
Knowledge of statistics is not necessary prior to attending the course.
Further course information, agenda and logistics can be found in the course booklet
 This hands-on course is organized by B&Gu with guest speakers from Illumina and Singapore Immunology Network. The course is suitable for bionformaticians and biologists with coding skills, which are new to RNA-seq technology.
The course is based on the use of Bioconductor open-source software. Knowledge of at least one scripting language is required. R coding skill is not required since it is part of the course.
Further course information, agenda and logistics can be found in the course booklet.
