Workshop: RNA-seq Bioinformatics: A Practical Introduction
Mapping, Visualization, Basic Analyses
May 13th - 14th 2013, Leipzig, Germany
Registration Deadline: March 1st 2013
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 machines and their implications on data analysis will be discovered. The participants will be trained on understanding their own HTS data, finding potential problems/errors and finally start writing their own pipelines. In the course we will use a real-life RNA-seq dataset from the current market leader Illumina.
All analyses will be performed using cloud services. By saving their final cloud-images, the participants will be able to reuse all tools/pipelines and to continue their analyses after the workshop (platform independently: Windows, Mac OS, Linux).
Due to the many requests for an academic rate we decided to offer a 20% discount for attendees with non-commercial background (documentary proof must be provided upon acceptance). Accordingly, we postponed the registration deadline to March 1st 2013.
Registration ends on March 1st !!!
