Transcriptomic Experiments: Analyzing Sequence Data

Date: 

Mon - Thu, Sep 11 to Sep 14, 9:00am - 4:00pm

Location: 

Cambridge: Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT and Harvard, 400 Technology Square, First floor, Schwartz Auditorium

The Harvard University Center for AIDS Research and the Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT and Harvard will present a four-day workshop focused on approaches to analyze sequence data obtained from high-throughput transcriptomic experiments. Topics to be covered include study design, differential expression analysis, single cell genomics and transcriptome assembly. This course will feature morning and afternoon sessions taught by expert faculty and technical assistants. All participants will acquire skills in fundamental computational methods, study design, data interpretation, and overall literacy in bioinformatic analysis useful for the analysis of microbial genome data. Participants are encouraged to bring their own datasets to work on and no previous experience is required. A $350.00 registration fee includes breakfast, lunch, and access to Amazon Web Services cloud infrastructure. A networking social event will be held for all participants who complete the workshop.
