Please join us on October 15-18, 2018 at the EMBL-EBI campus in Cambridge/UK to learn how to analyze RNAseq data in zebrafish.
In this hands-on course, participants will learn how to design functional genomics experiments and how to manage and analyse such datasets from zebrafish and to compare these to other species. The course will be relevant to researchers working on a wide range of topics, but will use a number of cancer datasets as the basis for hands-on analysis. The final day will provide participants with an opportunity to apply the tools and resources introduced during the previous teaching sessions by undertaking a short problem solving session.
Audience: This course is aimed at researchers currently working with zebrafish and generating genomic and functional data. No prior bioinformatics knowledge is required, but knowledge of R and web-based packages would be beneficial. Trainees with limited experience of R will be provided with pre-course preparation materials to increase their R knowledge. Trainees, junior and senior group leaders are all invited to apply!
At the end of the course you will be able to:
- Design and implement RNA-Seq experiments using Zebrafish
- Know and apply common approaches and tools used in the analysis of zebrafish expression data
- Undertake basic data visualisation
- Query RNA-Seq datasets for gene signatures
- Undertake cross species comparison of gene datasets
Space is limited to 30 participants and an application process is required. Deadline is July 27, 2018
Please forward and post.
