The DKTK School of Oncology and the Heidelberg Center for Human Bioinformatics (HD-HuB) from the German Network for Bioinformatics Infrastructure (de.NBI) invite you to a two-day bioinformatics workshop on “Data Interpretation for Next Generation Sequencing Data in Cancer Research”. The course is aimed at researchers working with larger datasets of next-generation sequencing (NGS) data arising from patient tumor samples. It will teach background knowledge on technologies used for data generation and for data analysis. Commonly used tools for data interpretation will be presented and can be applied in hands-on sessions on provided data sets.
The course will combine instructional lectures in the morning, which focus on a specific NGS data type (e.g. Whole Genome, whole exome, methylome, RNAseq …). The lectures will introduce methods for data generation and tools for analysis. The latter will be demonstrated in interactive course in the afternoon. Each day will be closed by scientific lecture presenting oncology research highlights using methods described in the course.
The course will teach background knowledge on technologies used for data generation and for data analysis. Commonly used tools for data interpretation will be presented and can be used in hands-on parts on provided data sets.
The course is targeted at researchers with a background in medicine or biology, who work in oncological projects analyzing large data sets arising from tumor samples and who work together with bioinformatics specialists for data analysis. Basic knowledge in R and command line skills are appreciated but not mandatory. The course is not aimed at bioinformatics specialists.
