Description: The aim of this course is to provide hands-on experience in analysing NGS data, including:
- Knowledge of the various sequencing technologies, data formats and analysis workflows commonly used in "'NGS'" analysis workflows
- Hands-on experience with common analytical workflows for ChIP-seq, RNASeq data and De Novo Genome Assemblies using computer exercises.
- An overview of available tools and discuss their limitations.
Further information is available here.
- Our courses are open to all who might benefit
