Bioinformatics methods for next generation sequencing analysis

Dates: September 19-23 2016

Location: Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim

Lecturers: Morten Beck Rye, Einar Ryeng, Pål Sætrom, Eivind Coward

Course code: MOL8008

Credits: 7.5 ECTS

Registration: Now closed


The course will introduce bioinformatic approaches, tools and pipelines for computational analyses of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data. Focus will be on analysis methods for coding and non-coding RNA from RNA-seq, and transcription factors and epigenetic markers from ChIP-Seq. The course will cover strategies, methods and workflows used for analyses of such data, including mapping to reference genomes, feature extraction, and statistical analysis. In addition, the biological interpretation of output from such analyses will be presented as case studies from scientific journals.
