The course will provide students with theoretical and practical knowledge on how to perform bioinformatic analyses of RNA-Seq data, mainly aimed at the identification of genes differentially expressed across different conditions.
PhD Students or young researchers in molecular biology and/or genetics with little or no background in bioinformatics.
After this course participants should be able to:
understand the theoretical principles of the analysis of RNA-Seq data
plan and execute the main steps of a bioinformatic RNA-Seq data analysis
use statistical approaches for the identification of differentially expressed genes
understand the results obtained
Basic background knowledge on genetics, molecular biology and transcriptomics.
