Bioplatforms Australia in collaboration with EMBL-EBI and CSIRO Bioinformatic core would like to announce a 2 day hands-on Next Generation Sequencing workshops to be held in Brisbane and Adelaide in November.
We would appreciate it very much if you could forward this email and attached flier to any interested parties.
Brisbane University of Queensland 13-14 November, 2012
Adelaide University of Adelaide 27-28 November, 2012
This course is designed to familiarise participants with next Generation Sequence data analysis and to provide hands-on computational experience in analysis of NGS data using common analytical approaches for ChIP-seq, RNA-Seq data and de novo genome assembly.
The course covers data analysis of RNA-Seq and ChIP-Seq experiments and de novo genome assembly of small genomes. Topics will include: data quality, alignment, data handling and visualisation, region identification, transcriptome analysis and basis statistical analysis.
The practical 2 day hands-on course is designed for bench biologists, PhD students or early career postdoctoral researchers with no or basic bioinformatics experience who are planning or currently using NGS approaches in their research area.
