Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Workshop

Application of NGS in Functional Genomics:
Theory and Practice

28 - 30 July 2014

 

This workshop is intended to provide a practical and hands-on introduction to RNA-seq and ChIP-seq data analysis. Participants will be guided through a series of theory and practical sessions, covering read mapping, detection of differential expression for RNA-seq as well as peak calling and motif analysis for ChIP-seq. Please refer here for the detailed programme.

Invited workshop instructors will include Dr Zhenyu Xuan, University of Texas for RNA-seq and Dr Alexander Nord, Genomics Division, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab for ChIP-seq sessions.

Participants, except the open seminar, should be familiar with the basic principles of human genetics. The practical sessions will include command line work, so basic familiarity with Unix environment is strongly recommended. Researchers planning to work on studies using RNA-seq or ChIP-seq are welcome to attend. Applicants who are willing to give presentation on relevant discipline would be an advantage.

Registration is required and is limited to 25 individuals. Please send your CV and presentation title (if any) to Ms Stella Law at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it by 22 July 2014. Successful registration would be informed by email.
