RNA-seq Bioinformatics: A Practical Introduction

Mapping, Visualization, Basic Analyses

 

               

 

When?

October 16th - 17th 2014


Where?

Leipzig, Germany


Scope and Topics

The purpose of this workshop is to get a deeper understanding in High-Throughput Sequencing (HTS) with a special focus on bioinformatics issues. Advantages and disadvantages of current sequencing technologies and their implications on data analysis will be discovered. The participants will be trained on understanding their own HTS data, finding potential problems/errors therein and finally begin writing their own analysis pipelines.

By the end of this workshop the participants will:

  • be familiar with the sequencing methods from various platforms:
    • Illumina
    • 454 (Roche)
    • Ion Torrent
    • PacBio
  • be aware of the different error sources of these machines
  • understand common data formats and standards
  • know relevant tools for HTS data processing
  • automate tasks with shell scripting to create reusable data pipelines
  • perform basic analyses (gene quantification, differential expression)
  • plot and visualize results
  • be able to continue and reuse all analyses

Requirements

  • basic linux knowledge (shell usage, common commands). You should be familiar with the commands covered in the Learning the Shell Tutorial
  • basic understanding of molecular biology (DNA, RNA, gene expression, PCR, ...)

Target Audience

  • biologists or data analysts with no or little experience in analyzing HTS data

Included in the Course

  • Course materials
  • Catering
  • Conference Dinner

Program

  1. Introduction to sequencing technologies from a data analysts view
    • Mechanisms of instruments: Illumina, 454, IonTorrent and PacBio
    • Sequencing protocols (mRNA-seq, micro RNAseq, …)
    • Capabilities & limitations: error sources, biases & beyond
  2. Sequence file formats (fastq)
  3. Preparation of raw reads: quality control, adapter clipping
  4. Read mapping
    • Alignment methods
    • Mapping tools, mapping to a reference genome
  5. Mapping output
    • File formats (SAM/BAM)
    • samtools
    • bedtools
  6. Visualization of mapped reads
    • UCSC: data format for upload
    • IGV (local)
  7. Gene expression quantification (coverage, FPKM)
  8. Differential expression analysis (with DESeq)
