18-20 November 2020
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, this course will be held online
In collaboration with the Max Perutz labs in Vienna (Austria)
This course is an introduction to the bioinformatic analysis of large epigenomic data sets obtained using Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies, with a focus on ChIP-seq, RNA-seq and chromatin accessibility (DNase-seq & ATAC-seq). After a targeted introduction to scripting in bash and R (Tidyverse & Bioconductor), the course briefly covers the theoretical foundations of the most widely adopted algorithms and analysis pipelines, followed by hands-on tutorials using publicly available NGS data sets.
The course is aimed at researchers moving the first steps in epigenomic data analysis and / or interested in learning more about this subject. The course offers a mixture of lectures and hands-on practical tutorials using widely used tools and R/BioConductor packages. Previous knowledge of genomics data formats from Illumina sequencers, exposure to bioinformatics and basic computer programming knowledge are all beneficial but not a necessary prerequisite.
Day 1 (Wed) - Introduction to R/Tidyverse/BioConductor/Bash; Introduction to the datasets used in the course
Day 2 (Thu) - ChIP-seq & chromatin accessibility, theory and practice
Day 3 (Fri) - RNA-seq, theory and practice; Introduction to integrative analyses
