Courses for IST Austria's Graduate School

Proposals for courses can be done here.

This course provides the possibility to propose courses.

We will discuss common types of sequencing data and perform hands on analyses in:
Genomics:
DNA sequencing platforms
Tools for genome assemblies
Transcriptomics:
RNA-seq and Ribo-profiling analysis, detection of differentially expressed genes
Evolution of gene expression
Epigenomics:
Examples of analyses different datasets, e.g. Chip-Seq (histone modifications).

Target group: Experimental biologists and/or theoreticians looking to analyze large-scale sequencing data.

Prerequisites: none.

Evaluation: Three project reports.

Teaching format: Each week there will be an introductory lecture followed by a computational assignment.
