BIOINFORMATICS WORKSHOP (APR 2019)

Visualize and Share Large Raw Sequencing Datasets

Raw sequencing datasets generated by Genome-seq, Exome-seq, RNA-seq, ChiP-seq, etc… experiments consist of a compilation of sequences assigned to a genomic location (BAM files). These files are usually too large to be manipulated by non-bioinformaticians. Nonetheless, assessing the quality of the experiment and getting a prior overview of the data can be achieved by a larger audience. BAM files manipulation can help the biologist in understanding her/his data and perform troubleshooting operations.

In this mini-workshop, we will explain how these files can be handled by biologists without bioinformatics knowledge using a conventional computer.

In detail, attendees will be trained to:

  • Perform and interpret quality control on BAM files
  • Create their own UCSC genome browser track to navigate through BAM files
  • Transfer/share large BAM files via public servers.

The study of biology is moving from the interrogation of individual molecules to a systems biology approach, where the interplay of a vast collection of components within a given biological system is analyzed. With the advent of high-throughput technologies, our knowledge of the relationship between genes has deepened and we are developing improved maps of various cellular processes. To exploit this information, we need to understand how these genes interact with each other to form modules that act as discrete functional systems.
Here we will explain how computational modeling and simulations can help understand these systems.
The first part of the course is an introduction to Computational Systems Biology.
Next, we will focus on the logical modeling framework, which can be use in the absence of quantitative data.
Finally, students will learn how to model a simple system using GINsim (http://ginsim.org), a software package developed by Denis Thieffry’s team from “Ecole Normale Superieure de Paris” (http://www.biologie.ens.fr/csb/).
This course is free of charge and open to all NUS staff and students interested in biology and computational biology.

Subscription is required, Registration is now closed.
Only the first 30 registrants will be able to attend the course.
