Bioinformatics for genome and epigenome analysis
During the EpiDiverse Summer School, the Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) of the Innovative Training Network (ITN) 'EpiDiverse' got an introduction to the linux operating system and the method of Bisulfite-Seq for DNA methylation calling. The EpiDiverse pipelines for WGBS data analysis and DMR calling and the internal data management plan were explained in detail. Both were developed earlier by the bioinformatics students at ecSeq in Leipzig. Furthermore, the students were trained in the usage of the pipelines and got an intensive hands-on course in python programming.
Now the ESRs are all set to start analysing the data that will start coming in soon.
