October 16th - 17th 2014
The purpose of this workshop is to get a deeper understanding in High-Throughput Sequencing (HTS) with a special focus on bioinformatics issues. Advantages and disadvantages of current sequencing technologies and their implications on data analysis will be discovered. The participants will be trained on understanding their own HTS data, finding potential problems/errors therein and finally begin writing their own analysis pipelines. In the course we will use a real-life RNA-seq dataset from the current market leader illumina.
By the end of this workshop the participants will:
David Langenberger (ecSeq Bioinformatics) started working with small non-coding RNAs in 2006. Since 2009 he uses HTS technolgies to investigate these short regulatory RNAs as well as other targets. He has been part of several large HTS projects, for example the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC).
Mario Fasold (ecSeq Bioinformatics) works in the analysis of microarray data since 2007 and developed several bioinformatics tools such as the Bioconductor package AffyRNADegradation and the Larpack program package. Since 2011 he specialized in the field of HTS data analysis and helped analysing sequecing data of several large consortium projects.
Invited speaker (Illumina) will give a short presentation about state-of-the-art sequencing technologies from Illumina.
