Bioinformatics Training Program
We provide bioinformatics training through short workshops and in-depth courses.
Next Generation Sequencing Introduction Series:
Workshops on RNA-seq, ChIP-seq to introduce basic concepts of Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) analysis. The goal of these workshops are to enable researchers to design their studies appropriately and perform preliminary data analyses.
Basic Bioinformatics Skills Series:
Topics include R, data visualization using R, Python programming, Unix and high-performance computing (duration varies from half a day to three days).
In-Depth Next Generation Sequencing Analysis Courses
These intensive courses run for 10-12 days and are aimed at bench biologists interested in learning how to perform NGS data analysis independently using best practices. Topics covered in this course include:
UNIX & High-Performance Computing (Orchestra with HMS-RC) NGS data analysis (RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, Variant calling) Statistical analysis using R Functional analysis downstream of sequence analysis
No prior NGS or command line expertise is required for our workshops or courses unless explicitly stated.
