The course is presented by the Centre for Genomic Research and the Computational Biology Facility at the University of Liverpool. We offer keynote talks by experts in the areas covered and a large portion of the course comprises practical computer sessions, allowing delegates to obtain hands-on experience.
This course is designed to provide a 2.5 day introduction to the conceptual, practical and interpretational issues involved in large-scale gene expression profiling. Whole transcriptome profiling is now well established and can be applied to a wide range of biological questions. However, it is challenging both in handling the huge amounts of data generated and downstream interpretation.
This course covers aspects associated with next-generation sequencing-based approaches to transcriptional profiling (RNA-Seq), comprising the following sections:
• Introduction to next-generation sequencing, sequencing QC and RNA-Seq
• Experimental design and cost implications
• Laboratory tour of sequencing laboratory
• Mapping and visualising RNAseq data
• Multi-omics data integration

Candidates will be selected on their suitability as outlined in their application. Attendees are required to have basic linux command line skills. Candidates can be advised on how to gain these skills in an easy and free manner. For more information on the workshop and required prerequisites please contact Matthew Gemmell.
