Bioinformatics and computational analyses of large data sets

  • Objectives: To introduce the general structure and tasks in genomics data analysis. To perform operations on genomic intervals, to find nearest features, overlap operations, and to work with BAM files. To get an understanding of pre-processing and quality check for sequencing data. To be able to perform differential expression and downstream analysis using RNA-seq data. To be able to perform peak calling and downstream analysis using ChIP-seq data.
  • Profile of the participants: The course will be beneficial for first-year computational biology PhD students, and experimental biologists and medical scientists who want to begin data analysis or are seeking a better understanding of computational genomics and analysis of popular sequencing methods.”
