DNA Sequencing Informatics I BINP28
The course is offered the first part of the spring term. The medium of instruction is English.
Bioinformatics, the application of computational methods to biological and biomedical problems, is a rapidly growing field. A large amount of data is being generated in the post genomic era through research in genomics, proteomics, and structural biology. It is therefore crucial that modern biochemists and biologists have knowledge of bioinformatics.
This hands on course will give you the experience and provide the tools that are needed to analyze next generation sequencing data. It is particularly focused on the analysis of:
- transcriptome data
- amplicon data
- genome data
Working environment is Linux and the course will develop the students’ skills in Bash and Python.
Covered areas are:
- differential expression
- variant calling
- gene prediction
- community structure analysis
The course ends with an one week project work.
