Training Course: High Throughput Sequencing DNA-Seq and RNA-Seq Analysis for Plant Breeding (Mon. 12 Mar, 2018 12:00 - Sat. 24 Mar, 2018 12:00)

The purpose of this course is to familiarise participants with data analysis methodologies and provide hands-on training on the latest analytical approaches. Lectures will give insight into how biological knowledge can be generated from high-throughput sequencing experiments and illustrate different ways of analysing such data. Practicals will consist of computer exercises that will enable the participants to apply statistical methods to the analysis of sequencing data under the guidance of the lecturers and teaching assistants, specialists in the topics addressed by the course.
