There are four more workshops this year. Get trained in NGS Data Analysis and enjoy one of three great German cities in summer, fall or winter.
Berlin in winter: Discover the city for yourself in your very own way. The Brandenburg Gate with its glittering icicles, the Tiergarten under a wonderful white blanket of snow - winter in Berlin is simply wonderful.
How to use bisulfite-treated sequencing to study DNA methylation
November 12-15 in Berlin
In a nutshell
The purpose of this workshop is to get a deeper understanding of the use of bisulfite-treated DNA in order to analyze the epigenetic layer of DNA methylation. Advantages and disadvantages of the so-called 'bisulfite sequencing' and its implications on data analyses will be covered. The participants will be trained to understand bisulfite-treated NGS data, to detect potential problems/errors and finally to implement their own pipelines. After this course they will be able to analyze DNA methylation and create ready-to-publish graphics.
English Garden, Nymphenburg Castle, Isar: Munich is beautiful in winter. Swim outside in the steaming Westbad in Pasing and watch the surfers on the Eisbach wave in the English Garden. And in the evening, visit one of the many Christmas markets and enjoy a hot mulled wine.
Quality Control, Read Mapping, Visualization and DNA Variant Analysis
December 11-13 in Munich
In a nutshell
The purpose of this workshop is to get a deeper understanding in Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) 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 NGS data, finding potential problems/errors therein and finally perform their first downstream analysis (variant calling). In the course we will use a real-life NGS dataset from the current market leader illumina.
