Functional genomics looks at the dynamic aspects of how the genome functions within cells, particularly in the form of gene expression (transcription) and gene regulation. This workshop surveys current methods for functional genomics using high-throughput technologies.
High-throughput technologies such as next generation sequencing (NGS) can routinely produce massive amounts of data. However, such datasets pose new challenges in the way the data have to be analyzed, annotated and interpreted which are not trivial and are daunting to the wet-lab biologist. This course covers state-of-the-art and best-practice tools for bulk RNA-seq and ChIP-seq data analysis, and will also introduce approaches in prognostic gene signatures.
Enthusiastic and motivated wet-lab biologists who want to gain more of an understanding of NGS data and eventually progress to analysing their own data
The course will include a great deal of hands-on work in R and at the command line. In order for you to make the most of the course we strongly recommend that you take an introductory course, or have sufficient experience in the following areas:
