GTPB: TA-AFADM1 Transcriptome Assembly, Automatic Annotation and Data Mining

GTPB: TA-AFADM1 Transcriptome Assembly, Automatic Annotation and Data Mining | Bioinformatics Training | Scoop.it

This is a combined course in RNA-seq and functional annotation aimed at scientists working in next generation sequencing transcriptomics who want to extract the best possible information from their data. The course covers all aspects of RNA-seq analysis, from quality control, to mapping, reconstruction of transcripts and differential expression. Participants will learn how to deal with RNA-seq data both in the presence and absence of a reference genome.

The second part of the course is a practical workshop on Blast2GO, the most popular framework for functional annotation of sequence data. Participants will learn how to generate de novo functional labels, such as GO terms and KEGG pathways, for their sequence data and how to extract relevant information from these annotations, i.e. visualisation and enrichment analysis using the Gene Ontology. This part will be based on the use of the Blast2GO application and will mainly comprise exercises and practical cases. Participants may bring their own data.

 

With Stefan Goetz and Riccardo Alese Cigliano

Pedro Fernandes's insight:

This  is a new edition of a combined RNAseq and Automatic Functional Annotation hands-on training course, successfully held here several times.

Know or die: risk and opportunity of Knowledge 2.0
“And the web stormed the enterprise and disrupted roles, tasks and jobs: it cast speed, openness, flexibility and efficiency throughout, sparing no business processes: manufacturing, logistic, accounting, customer relation management, lead generation…”
The digital mutation is also profoundly disrupting how knowledge is acquired, organized and shared. Knowledge is an intangible, yet strategic asset of any enterprise. With businesses becoming more virtual and dematerialized, its value is patently and rapidly growing. Continue reading →
