RNA-Seq & ChiP-Seq Data Analysis Course at EBI

I just got this announcement from EMBL-EBI about an RNA-seq/ChIP-seq analysis hands-on course. Find the full details, schedule, and speaker list here.

Title: Advanced RNA-Seq and Chip-Seq Data Analysis Course
Date: May 1-4 2012
Venue: EMBL-EBI, Hinxton, Nr Cambridge, CB10 1SD, UK
Registration Closing Date: March 6 2012 (12:00 midday GMT)

This course is aimed at advanced PhD students and post-doctoral researchers who are applying or planning to apply high throughput sequencing technologies and bioinformatics methods in their research. The aim of this course is to familiarize the participants with advanced data analysis methodologies and provide hands-on training on the latest analytical approaches.

Lectures will give insight into how biological knowledge can be generated from RNA-seq and ChIP-seq experiments and illustrate different ways of analyzing such data Practicals will consist of computer exercises that will enable the participants to apply statistical methods to the analysis of RNA-seq and ChIP-seq data under the guidance of the lecturers and teaching assistants. Familiarity with the technology and biological use cases of high throughput sequencing is required, as is some experience with R/Bioconductor.

The course covers data analysis of RNA-Seq and ChIP-Seq experiments.
Topics will include: alignment, data handling and visualisation, region identification, differential expression, data quality assessment and statistical analysis, using R/Bioconductor.


  1. Hello,
    I have a question about your blog. Please email me!

  2. They will definitely adhere to a pre-set Agile software application advancement approach to produce easy to use and reputable products. Agile strategy is in truth the following element you must take into consideration as you pick a Statistical analysis. Agile is an approach of software application advancement that divides a substantial project in to a pattern of short versions. Agile additionally makes certain that a client is continually associated with every phase of software production also if they are based in an overseas nation. To guarantee that you at some point get software program that could solve your trouble, pick a company that could imagine and know your task's objectives. It must want to undergo the project draft and assist you alter requirements that are either fuzzy or unneeded.
