RNA-Seq Next Generation Sequencing Analysis Workshop
26 - 28 October 2016
Leicester, United KingdomRNA-Seq Next Generation Sequencing Analysis Workshop http://www2.le.ac.uk/colleges/medbiopsych/facilities-and-services/cbs/bbash/training/workshop-webpages/RNA-Seq-workshop-2016 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/rna-seq-next-generation-sequencing-analysis-workshop This course will provide an introduction to next generation sequencing (NGS) platforms, data analysis and tools for data quality control, read alignment (mapping), differential expression, de novo and referenced based transcriptome assembly, annotation and gene discovery of RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) data. The course will be delivered using a mixture of lectures and computer based hands on practical sessions using real data. This course is aimed at wet-lab biologists who are involved in research projects that will require the handling and analysis of NGS data. A significant proportion of the course will be computer-based using command line tools in the Unix environment, therefore, in order to gain maximum benefit from the course all attendees will be required to have basic Unix skills. This means applicants must at a minimum be able to move easily around the file system and make directories (e.g. pwd, cd, ls, mkdir), manage files (e.g. cp, mv, ln, rm, less, head, tail, wc) and search with grep. 2016-10-26 00:00:00 UTC 2016-10-28 00:00:00 UTC University of Leicester University of Leicester - College Court Conference Centre, Leicester, United Kingdom University of Leicester - College Court Conference Centre Leicester United Kingdom LE2 3UF Bioinformatics Sequencing RNA-Seq    workshops_and_courses  NGSRNA-SeqBioinformatics
Training Course on Best practices for RNA-Seq data analysis
27 - 29 September 2017
Fisciano, ItalyTraining Course on Best practices for RNA-Seq data analysis https://elixir-iib-training.github.io/website/2017/09/27/RNA-seq-Salerno.html https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/training-course-on-best-practices-for-rna-seq-data-analysis Next-generation sequencing (NGS) of RNA libraries (RNA-Seq) has become increasingly common and it largely replaced microarray technology for gene expression profiling. The aim of this course is to get a deeper understanding of RNA-Seq experiments, providing a theoretical introduction to the data processing steps, together with practical sessions illustrating the use of the most popular data analysis tools. The classroom size is limited to 25 participants to optimize the learning and the interaction with the instructors. Starting from the raw sequenced data coming from different phenotypical samples (e.g disease vs healthy control samples), genes which are differentially expressed between the two conditions are determine. Some strategies are illustrated for detecting alternative splicing products, predicting novel isoforms and gene fusion events. Some methods for downstream analysis are described to give insight into how biological knowledge can be generated from RNA-Seq experiments. A lecture on single-cell RNA-Seq will provide an idea of how transcriptome data from individual cells is now emerging as a powerful tool, allowing the study of cell-to-cell gene expression heterogeneity in the same tissue. 2017-09-27 09:15:00 UTC 2017-09-29 16:30:00 UTC Anna Marabotti (University of Salerno and ELIXIR-IIB Training Team, Italy), Roberto Tagliaferri (University of Salerno, Italy), Alessandro Weisz (University of Salerno, Italy), Loredana Le Pera (ELIXIR-IIB Training Team and IIT, Italy), Allegra Via (ELIXIR-IIB Training Coordinator, CNR-IBPM, Italy) Campus di Fisciano, Università degli Studi di Salerno, Via Giovanni Paolo II, n. 132, Fisciano, Italy Campus di Fisciano, Università degli Studi di Salerno, Via Giovanni Paolo II, n. 132 Fisciano Provincia di Salerno Italy 84084 Transcriptomics RNA splicing Sequencing Bioinformatics RNA-Seq Gene expression Campus di Fisciano, University of Salerno, Italy email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org ELIXIR Italy PhD students and young researchers in the life science and computational biology field who are planning to use RNA-seq data and are looking for the best practices to analyze these types of data 25 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_servedregistration_of_interest NGSRNA-SeqBioinformaticsData analysisHigh Throughput Sequencing AnalysisGene Expression
