Organizer: University of Cambridge

Host institution: University of Cambridge Bioinformatics Training

Start: Wednesday, 25 October 2017 @ 08:30

End: Thursday, 26 October 2017 @ 16:30

Venue: Craik-Marshall Building

City: Cambridge

Country: United Kingdom

Postcode: CB2 3AR

Scientific topic: RNA-Seq, ChIP-seq, Data mining, Transcriptomics, Data visualisation, Functional genomics, Epigenomics, Bioinformatics

Target audience:
  • Graduate students
  • Postdocs and Staff members from the University of Cambridge
  • Institutions and other external Institutions or individuals
Description:

The aim of this course is to familiarize the participants with the primary analysis of datasets generated through two popular high-throughput sequencing (HTS) assays: ChIP-seq and RNA-seq.

This course starts with a brief introduction to the transition from capillary to high-throughput sequencing (HTS) and discusses quality control issues, which are common among all HTS datasets. Next, we will present the alignment step and how it differs between the two analysis workflows. Finally, we focus on dataset specific downstream analysis, including peak calling and motif analysis for ChIP-seq and quantification of expression, transcriptome assembly and differential expression analysis for RNA-seq.
