October 13th - 14th 2014
The purpose of this workshop is to obtain a thorough understanding on the expression profiling of known microRNAs and the prediction of novel microRNA genes using high-throughput sequencing technologies (HTS). The participants will be trained to understand both, the data analysis aspects of HTS technologies and the functional implications of small RNAs. Downstream analysis to infer the functional implication of the detected microRNAs will be discussed including target prediction/detection and functional analysis. After this workshop, the participants will be able to perform their own microRNA analysis using up-to-date methods and extract scientific valuable findings.
By the end of this workshop the participants will:
Michael Hackenberg (University Granada) is the main developer of miRanalyzer, one of the most-used microRNA gene prediction tools using small RNA-seq data.
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 analyzed small RNA-Seq data of several large projects, for example the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC).
Jana Hertel (University Leipzig) is an expert in microRNA analysis and will give a short presentation about her personal experience with microRNAs and NGS.
