Exome Variants, Copy Number Calling, Variant Annotation and Reporting workshop, December 2017

This course is aimed at clinicians and wet-lab biologists who are involved in research projects requiring the analysis of exome data, interpretation of sequence variation identified during genomic analyses, and preparing accurate sequence variation descriptions for publication, clinical reporting and data basing. Attendees will receive an introduction to calling variants and copy number alterations from exome sequencing data alignment files, reference sequences, variation nomenclature, variant annotation, variant effect prediction, and clinical and publication reporting recommendations.

Introduction to RNA-seq Data Analysis

RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) is quickly becoming the method of choice for transcriptome profiling. Nevertheless, it is a non-trivial task to transform the vast amount of data obtained with high-throughput sequencers into useful information. Thus, RNA-seq data analysis is still a major bottleneck for most researchers in this field. The ability of correctly interpreting RNA-seq results, as well as knowledge on the intrinsic properties of these data, are essential to avoid incorrect experimental designs and the application of inappropriate analysis methodologies.

An Introduction to Solving Biological Problems with R

[R]( is a highly-regarded, free, software environment for statistical analysis, with many useful features that promote and facilitate reproducible research. In this course, we give an introduction to the R environment and explain how it can be used to import, manipulate and analyse tabular data. After the course you should feel confident to start exploring your own dataset using the materials and references provided.

Workshop Metagenomics

Metagenomics is a relatively new field that studies the presence of microorganisms in a sample, for example in water or soil samples, and interactions between the microorganisms. Genetic material is isolated from the samples and used to determine the presence… The post Workshop Metagenomics appeared first on Dutch Techcentre for Life Sciences.
