Computational genomics course for hands-on data analysis 2020
Date: 23 - 25 September 2020
Altuna Alkalin, Verdan Franke, Bora Uyar (RBC/deNBI-epi Scientists from Berlin)
23-25 September 2020
The general aim of the course is to equip participants with practical and technical knowledge to analyze single cell RNA-seq data. With this aim in mind, we will go through unsupervised machine learning methods to analyze high-dimensional data sets, and move on to statistical methods developed to analyze bulk RNA-seq. Lastly, we will introduce analysis techniques used for single cell RNA-seq.
There will be theoretical lectures followed by practical sessions where students directly apply what they have learned. The programming will be mainly done in R.
Day 1: Intro to machine learning & data visualization for genomics
Day 2: Bulk RNA-seq analysis
Day 3: Single cell RNA-seq analysis
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.r
Some statistics and R programming experience will be good to keep up with the course. Practicals will be done in R.
