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.
