NGS: RNA-seq data analysis

The BioSB research school and partner LUMC are organizing a 3-day course on RNA-seq data analysis. This is an advanced course for people with experience in NGS. The course will consist of seminars and hands-on command line, Galaxy and R… The post NGS: RNA-seq data analysis appeared first on Dutch Techcentre for Life Sciences.

Metabolomics with the Q Exactive

This 3-day course will introduce you to using the Q Exactive mass spectrometer in your metabolomics investigations. The course will be led by experts in the field of metabolomics and include lectures, laboratory sessions and computer workshops to provide a detailed overview of the metabolomics pipeline applying the Q Exactive mass spectrometer.

Applied Microbial Genomics

Biotechnology research generates large-scale data, and specifically genomics data. But can this data and/or information effectively be used to answer your industrial microbiological research question? This course will teach you to consider and work with data-analysis strategies, which will provide… The post Applied Microbial Genomics appeared first on Dutch Techcentre for Life Sciences.

Analysis of single cell RNA-seq data

Recent technological advances have made it possible to obtain genome-wide transcriptome data from single cells using high-throughput sequencing (scRNA-seq). Even though scRNA-seq makes it possible to address problems that are intractable with bulk RNA-seq data, analysing scRNA-seq is also more challenging. In this course we will be surveying the existing problems as well as the available computational and statistical frameworks available for the analysis of scRNA-seq.

Variant effect prediction

This course is organised in collaboration with Dr. J.T. den Dunnen, Human Genetics & Clinical Genetics, LUMC, Leiden Aim of the course: DNA sequencing, incl. NGS, is a standard technology used in most modern laboratories. When the focus is on… The post Variant effect prediction appeared first on Dutch Techcentre for Life Sciences.

EMBL-EBI: Bioinformatics resources for exploring disease related data

This workshop will introduce students to [EMBL-EBI](, the databases and services it offers, and basic concepts in bioinformatics that will be of use to their disease related research work. It will explain the role of the EMBL-EBI in curating and sharing biological data with scientists around the world, and introduce concepts for locating relevant data and information of interest.
