The course will introduce participants to the latest advances in genomics and most commonly used bioinformatics tools and methods, which became an essential part of cutting-edge research in biology. During the 4 days, the participants will learn how to search public data repositories, obtain biological data sets relevant to their research and efficiently analyse them using the tools available through the web based Galaxy platform. The participants will get familiarized with the most common misuses of statistics in research and learn how to perform statistically sound analysis of their results. Hands-on sessions will give participants the opportunity to reinforce the analysis concepts they learned and work on practical examples, focusing on RNA-seq data analysis. The participants will also have a chance to get advice related to their own research questions during the last day’s Q&A session.
