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. Topics of the course organized by SciLifeLab in collaboration with  the Bioinformatics Core Facility at the University of Gothenburg. 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: 5 April, 2017
