As more and more massive omics data are generated, efficient platforms are continuously thriving to offer advanced data analysis tools/methods. This Course is aimed at motivated post-graduate biologists, bioinformaticians and computer scientists of an intermediate level working on high-throughput data to gain skills and learn dedicated methods for their data analyses. This course is open to international participants.

Up to 20 full time places will be available for the course. Acceptance will be subjected to an evaluation process.
Participation fees are 150€ and 1000€ for Academic and Industry applicants respectively (Fees include full accommodation during the whole course).

This Course will be balanced between lectures and tutorial sessions for NGS data analyses. A series of lectures on recent hot topics related to NGS data analyses and parasitic genomes are included in the program. Tutorial sessions, performed in a Linux environment, will consist of hands-on exercises or live demonstrations on computers.

Topics include:
1.RNASeq/DNASeq data handling
2.Mapping tools for reads alignment and visualisation
3.Differential expression analysis
4.Statistical analysis using R/bioconductor
5. Biological data visualization tool(s)
