"Best practices for RNA-Seq data analysis".

Course date: 27-29 SEPTEMBER 2017

Deadline for applications: 11 September 2017

Selection will start on July 20th and those with an adequate profile will be accepted immediately, until we reach 25 participants.

VENUE: Campus di Fisciano, University of Salerno, Via Giovanni Paolo II n. 132, 84084 Fisciano (SA), Italy.

COURSE DESCRIPTION: 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. 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.


Students will gain an understanding of:

  • experimental design
  • quality control
  • theoretical principles of RNA-Seq data analysis process
  • how to identify differentially regulated genes
  • how to identify alternative splicing events
  • how to identify gene fusion events
  • multiple testing correction
  • biological interpretation of RNA-seq data

For any question, please contact the ELIXIR-IIB Training Team (elixir.ita.training@gmail.com) and/or the local organiser Dr. Anna Marabotti (amarabotti@unisa.it).
