Course Detail

BS4017 High-Throughput Bioinformatics​
High throughput sequencing has made it possible to quantify the genomes and transcriptomes of any species. Transcriptome sequencing can produce evidence about molecular responses to environmental stimuli, whereas genome sequencing is used to study the evolution and adaptation in the particular species. In this course you will develop skills to process and analyze both genome and transcriptome sequencing data from most common sequencing platforms and to carry out data analysis in species with or without a reference genome. Practical analysis is done using free and open-source software tools with an emphasis on the command-line Linux computing environment.
a) How next-generation sequencing data is produced and preprocessed
b) How to use a Linux operating system and command line interface
c) General tools for processing different data types and the file format standards for each data type.
d) How to analyze transcriptomics and genomics sequencing data
e) The common research questions that can be addressed with genome sequencing and transcriptomics data
