  • Bioinformatics and functional genomics in zebrafish

    26 - 30 September 2022

    United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Bioinformatics and functional genomics in zebrafish http://tess.elixir-uk.org/events/bioinformatics-and-functional-genomics-in-zebrafish Zebrafish are widely used to study development, toxicity and disease, and functional genomics is used throughout the field to identify new pathways and mechanisms and for comparison to other model systems and humans. In this hands-on course, participants will learn how to design functional genomics experiments, manage and analyse RNA-seq datasets from zebrafish, and compare results to other species. The aim of the course is to equip researchers with tools to carry out functional analysis and data visualisation of RNA-seq data that has already been mapped to the genome and been analysed for differential gene expression. The course will be relevant to researchers working on a wide range of topics and will use real datasets from our lab for hands-on analysis. Who is this course for? This course is aimed at researchers currently working with zebrafish and generating genomic and functional data. Graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, research scientists and faculty are encouraged to apply.  Little to no experience with RNA-seq analysis is required, however, applicants who have already generated an RNA-seq dataset from zebrafish samples relevant to their project will gain the most benefit from this course.  Some experience with R is beneficial. Please note this information is from the 2019 course edition and may change slightly for the course taking place in 2022.  2022-09-26 09:00:00 UTC 2022-09-30 00:00:00 UTC European Bioinformatics Institute Hinxton, United Kingdom European Bioinformatics Institute Hinxton Cambridge United Kingdom CB10 1SD [] [] [] 30 [] [] []
