Advance your research. Understand de novo transcriptome assembly and differential gene expression analysis.

In a nutshell

  • Learn the essential computing skills for NGS-based assemblies
  • Understand de novo assembly algorithms and NGS data formats
  • Use de novo assembly tools
  • Find differentially expressed transcripts by using the transcriptome assembly

This workshop focusses on the transcriptome assembly and differential gene expression in non-model organisms. While analyses of model organisms generally rely on a reference genome, studies of non-model organisms usually lack this advantage. Thus, the de novo transcriptome analysis in non-model organisms poses some unique challenges.

All workshop attendees will be enabled to perform important first tasks in de novo transcriptome assembly using short-read next-generation sequencing data and uncover differentially expressed genes themselves. The course layout has been adapted to the needs of beginners in the field of NGS bioinformatics and allows scientists with no or little background in computer science to get a first hands-on experience in this new and fast evolving research topic.

Please remove NatureEvents from the title, AFAIK - this is not an official "Nature" event.

That's actually correct. We just put it to nature events to promote it. It is not from 'Nature' itself. The title was misleading and it was good to change it. Thanks Khader!
