Bioinformatics for Principal Investigators
Organizer: University of Cambridge
Host institution: University of Cambridge Bioinformatics Training
Start: Monday, 16 September 2019 @ 08:30
End: Tuesday, 17 September 2019 @ 16:00
Venue: Craik-Marshall Building
Country: United Kingdom
Postcode: CB2 3AR
Scientific topic: BioinformaticsTarget audience:
- Principal Investigators from the University of Cambridge
- Institutions and other external Institutions
- who are using or planning to use bioinformatics in their research
The aim of this workshop is to provide principal investigators with an introduction to the challenges of working with biological data and to the best practices, and tools, needed to perform bioinformatics research effectively and reproducibly.
On day 1, we will cover the importance of experimental design, discuss the challenges associated with (i) the analysis of high-throughput sequencing data (utilising RNA-seq as a working example) and (ii) the application of machine learning algorithms, as well as issues relating to reusability and reproducibility.
On day 2, we will put into practice concepts from day 1, running a RNA-seq data analysis pipeline, going from raw reads through differential expression analysis and the interpretation of downstream analysis results. Challenges encountered at each step of the analytical pipeline will be discussed. Please note that day 2 is optional.
The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.
