RNAseq and single-cell RNAseq course


09/03/2020 - 13/03/2020 All day

ELIXIR-IIB is pleased to announce the upcoming RNA-seq and single-cell RNA-seq course.
Course Description The course is based on the use of Bioconductor open-source software solutions. However, R coding skill is not required. Furthermore, RNA-seq, miRNAseq and single-cell seq analyses will be performed using the tools available as part of the Reproducible Bioinformatics Project (Beccuti et al., Bioinformatics 2018: Kulkarni et al. BMC Bioinformatics 2018). You can find here the complete course description, together with the program.
Target audience The course is suitable for life science researchers who are new to NGS technology, and no statistics prerequisites or computing experience are necessary for attending the course.
Learning objectives By the end of this course, the participants will learn the importance of a good experimental design in order to ask sensible biological questions, face some typical issues that can arise by analysing RNA-seq data, and acquire basic skills in R scripting.
Learning outcomes By the end of this course, the participants will be able to:

  • assess quality of data;
  • complete basic statistical tests on NGS data;
  • annotate and interpret data;
  • perform clustering methods for cell sub-population discovery.

Important dates
  • Deadline for applications: 28 February 2020. Course selection will be done on a first-come first-served basis and chosen participants will be immediately notified
  • Course date: 9-13 March 2020

Place: University of Turin, Molecular Biotechnology Center, via Nizza, 52, 10126 Torino, Italy
