Course Announcement / Reminder (ADER18F)

Analysis of Differential Expression with RNAseq (first course in 2018)
with Daniel Sobral, Daniel Faria and Daniel Neves
Keyterms: RNAseq
The GTPB is proud to announce that the above referenced hands-on training course is open for applicationsImportant dates:
Deadline for applications: March 30th 2018
Course dates: April 9th – April 12th 2018

Candidates with adequate profile will be accepted in the next 72 hours after the application until we reach 20 participants.High-throughput technologies allow us to detect transcripts present in a cell or tissue. This course covers practical aspects of the analysis of differential gene expression by RNAseq. Participants will be presented with real world examples and work with them in the training room, covering all the steps of RNAseq analysis, from planning the gathering of sequence data to the generation of tables of differentially expressed gene lists and visualization of results. We we will also cover some of the initial steps of secondary analysis, such as functional enrichment of the obtained gene lists.

Target Audiences:
Life Scientists who want to be able to use NGS data to evaluate gene expression (RNAseq). Computational researchers that wish to get acquainted with the concepts and methodologies used in RNAseq are also welcome. Participants are encouraged to bring their own data and will have the opportunity to apply the concepts learned in the course.
