IBA/TTA Bioinformatics course – Level 2
Wednesday, January 19th 2022
Venue: University of Oslo, DM4 Domus Medica, L-257

12.30 – 13.00 Part I: Theoretical introduction and short summary of level 1
After a brief repetition of required level 1 knowledge, we will give an introduction to:
- SNP calling and phylogenetic trees
- RNAseq and differential gene expression
Analysis techniques covered will employ raw data from Illumina platforms (HiSeq/MiSeq).
13:00 – 13:15 Coffee break
13.15 – 15.30 Part II: Hands-on exercises
- Map to reference assembly and building of SNP trees in Geneious with RAxML (using Ebola virus isolates as an example)
- RNAseq and differential gene expression in Geneious
This course is a continuation of IBA bioinformatics course level 1 and requires some basic knowledge in whole genome assembly, including quality assessment of raw data, trimming and contig assembly. Earlier participation in one of our level 1 courses is a requirement.
Participants must bring their own laptops (limited to max 8 persons, on a first-come first-serve basis).
A list of required preparations including instructions on how to install Geneious trial version will be provided a week before the course. If you have used a trial version of Geneious before, we will send you an educational license for the course.
Depending on the number of applicants, we will organize a repetition of this course on January 26th and February 2nd if needed. Places will be offered on a first-come first-serve basis, and if you are not among the first 8 registrations, we will offer you a place in one of the repetition courses instead.
