Register your interest - if you cannot make any of the currently scheduled dates and would be interested in additional dates being scheduled.
Description: This course provides an introduction to the tools available through the Bioconductor project for manipulating and analysing high-throughput sequencing data. We will present workflows for the analysis of CHip-Seq and RNA-seq, as well as tools to annotate and visualise results derived from other sequencing experiments (such as DNA resequencing) Further information is available here.
- Our courses are open to all who might benefit
- Booking priority is given to people from Cambridge University and Collaborating Institutes

Format: Presentations and practicals
Frequency: A number of times per year
- A knowledge of current sequencing technologies, data formats (e.g. fastq and bam) and alignment
- Familiarity with the R programming environment and preferably some experience with Bioconductor
- To provide an understanding of how aligned sequencing-reads, genome sequences and genomic regions are represented in R.
- To encourage confidence in reading sequencing reads into R, performing quality assessment and executing standard pipelines for RNA-seq and CHip-Seq analysis
