RNA-Seq Data Analysis Workshop
11 Mar 2024 - 14 Mar 2024 • Berlin, Germany
ecSeq Bioinformatics GmbH
Advance your research. Understand RNA-Seq analyses challenges and solve them yourself.

In a nutshell

- Learn the essential computing skills for NGS bioinformatics

- Understand NGS analysis algorithms (e.g. read alignment) and data formats

- Use bioinformatics tools for handling RNA-Seq data

- Create diagnostic graphics and statistics

- Compare different approaches for differential expression analysis

The purpose of this workshop is to get a deeper understanding in Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) with a special focus on bioinformatics issues. Advantages and disadvantages of current sequencing technologies and their implications on data analysis will be discovered. You will be trained on understanding NGS data formats and handling potential problems/errors therein. In the course we will use a real-life RNA-seq dataset from the current market leader illumina.

All workshop attendees will be enabled to perform important first tasks of NGS data analysis themselves. The course layout has been adapted to the needs of beginners in the field of NGS bioinformatics and allows scientists with no or little background in computer science to get a first hands-on experience in this new and fast evolving research topic.

Dagstuhl-Seminar — Coding Theory and Algorithms for Emerging Technologies in Synthetic Biology
15 Dec 2024 - 20 Dec 2024 • Schloss Dagstuhl, Wadern, Germany
Schloss Dagstuhl - Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik
The progress in understanding genes and genomes has given a boost to the use of synthetic DNA for biological and technological applications. Synthetic nucleic acids play a central role in synthetic biology and in emerging therapeutic paradigms, e.g., genome editing and nucleic acid vaccines. DNA-based data storage is making significant progress, and thanks to its extreme data-density, its high durability and its timelessness, it is promising to be the next standard for data archival systems. Synthetic biology and the use of synthetic DNA for information storage applications bring important algorithmic and data analysis challenges. In synthetic biology, reagent and assay design are often driven by algorithmic approaches. Novel synthesis technologies offer cost-reduction by several orders of magnitude at the cost of increased error-rate, raising new coding-theoretic questions. This Dagstuhl Seminar aims to bring together leading biologists, chemists, engineers, computer/data scientists, and theoreticians working on synthetic biology and on DNA-based data storage, to enable joint work in small groups leading to discussing and exploring recent advancements and current challenges.
