there are still a few seats available for the 2nd edition of the course "An introduction to Nanopore direct RNA Sequencing"
Dates: Online, 24-26 June
This course is structured over 3 days of theoretical and hands-on training and covers the majority of the concepts and challenges commonly faced when analysing direct RNA-Seq data. It will start from common tasks such as data QC and gene expression quantification and then move on to more advanced topics such as transcriptome assembly, polyA-tail length measurements and RNA modifications detection. This course is intended for an audience of researchers with a certain degree of familiarity with RNA sequencing concepts. While not exclusively directed to attendees with bioinformatics training, the majority of the practicals will make use of command-line tools. Therefore a good level of experience with a *nix environment (e.g. Linux or MacOS) and the shell (e.g. Bash) are highly desirable. Some familiarity with R will also be an advantage.
