Course in collaboration with the CUSO Doctoral Program StarOmics and CUSO Doctoral Program in Microbial Sciences

Organiser: Pilar Junier, University of Neuchâtel

Objectives and content

Whole transcriptome shotgun sequencing or RNAseq is a recent technology allowing to conduct expression studies taking advantage of high-throughput sequencing technologies.

During this activity methods for data gathering and analysis will be discussed and hands-on training will be given to the participants for the analysis of RNAseq datasets.
