The recent advances in DNA sequencing technologies have created new and very exciting possibilities in Life Sciences. However, due to the unprecedented amounts of data generated by these technologies it is not any more possible to use the good old Excel sheet to process and analyze this data. And more data is to come soon. This tutorial is offered by the Linnaeus Centre for Bioinformatics in collaboration with the Meta-Genomics Centre.
In response to high demand of many researchers, we offer a tutorial on advanced bioinformatics methods for next sequencing. The intended participants are researchers in Life Sciences who wish to learn how to organize sequence data and perform complex analysis of the aligned data that are generated by the sequencing machines. The tutorial is equally recommended for bioinformaticians, computer scientists and mathematicians who wish to get acquainted with the problems, current solutions and new possibilities created by these technologies.
The tutorial will be given by members of Jan Komorowski's and Claes Wadelius' labs who through collaborative research established methods for ChIP-chip experiment design, data harvesting, analysis, modeling and interpretation from this data. Most recently, the Komorowski-Wadelius team has established a leading competence in the ChIP-seq and other high-throughput sequencing methods.
The first part will introduce the general principles of the next sequencing technology and show computational methods that have been developed by the groups. In the second part of the tutorial, sample applications will be presented and explained. For more information, registration and payment check the links above. The number of places is limited.
