Introduction to Bioinformatics using NGS data

This 2 ECTS course will provide an entry-level introduction to a wide range of analytical techniques for massively parallel sequencing, including basic Linux commands. Lectures on the theory of analysis algorithmswill be paired with practical computational exercises demonstrating the use of common tools for analyzing data from each of several common sequencing study designs.

Topics covered will include:

  • Basic Linux usage
  • NGS read-to-reference alignment (genomic and RNA-Seq)
  • Variant calling in populations
  • De novo assembly of RNA-sequence data
  • Reference-guided RNA-Seq expression analysis
  • Data management

Analysis techniques covered will focus mostly on data from the Illumina platform, but we will discuss other sequencing platforms and the advantages and challenges to using their data.

Course fee: 1800 SEK

Application dead-line: 21 October, 2015
The course will be held in Umeå
