Venue: The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh

City: Edinburgh

Country: United Kingdom

Postcode: EH9 3JN

Scientific topic: Genomics, ChIP-seq, Bioinformatics

Description:

ChIP-seq (Chromatin ImmunoPrecipitation followed by Sequencing) is a popular high-throughput sequencing assay to identify binding sites of DNA-associated proteins and histone modifications. Determining how proteins interact with DNA and the epigenetic landscape is essential for elucidating the regulation of gene expression. The aim of this workshop is to familiarise the participants with the primary analysis of ChIP-seq data sets by providing a balanced set of lectures and practicals on analysis methodologies. Practicals include publicly available ChIP-seq datasets, processed using widely used and open-source software programs (e.g. FASTQC, BWA, samtools, bedtools, wiggletools, MACS2, MEME, TOMTOM, ngsplot) and visualised on the Ensembl genome browser.

Event type:
  • Workshops and courses

Keywords: Bioinformatics, ChIP-seq, Genomics
