MedILS Bioinformatics School in Transcriptomics

Due to COVID-19 the School will be held fully online

We invite participants enthusiastic about science, new technologies, biology, big data analysis, and those curious to learn new things. The School will introduce participants to the latest advances in next-generation sequencing (NGS) and most commonly used bioinformatics tools and methods to analyse transcriptomics data. 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.


During this School you will:

  • Learn the basics of next-generation sequencing (NGS)
  • Understand the basics of NGS analysis, data formats, data repositories and genome browsers
  • Compare different gene expression technologies (RNA-Seq vs Microarray)
  • Use web-based Galaxy platform for RNA-Seq data analysis
  • Perform downstream analyses (clustering, classification, and other machine learning approaches) on differentially expressed genes
