Kursens lärandemål After the completed course, the participants can understand the principles and perform basic bioinformatics analysis of genomics sequencing data. The participants can plan experimental designs and critically evaluate the appropriateness of the different sequencing based omics methods and technologies for genome-wide gene regulation studies.
Kursens innehåll Principles of gene regulation in non-disease cases and dysregulation in diseases at individual locus level as well as on genome-wide level. Principles of sequencing based genomics technologies and corresponding bioinformatics data analysis. Concrete bioinformatics data analysis by the students of selected published projects.
Arbetsformer The course consists of lectures, discussion, seminars and hands-on bioinformatics analysis.
Obligatoriska moment The lectures, discussions, seminars and hands-on practicals are compulsory. Absence from compulsory parts is compensated according to the instructions from the course leader.
Examination The participants will be examined with active participation in the bioinformatics practicals and presentations in the end of the course.
Kurslitteratur och övriga läromedel Recent articles and websites.
Antal studenter 15 - 20
Urval av studenter Selection will be based on 1) the relevance of the course syllabus for the applicant's doctoral project (according to written motivation), 2) date for registration as a doctoral student (priority given to earlier registration date)
Övrig information The course is given in collaboration with the RIKEN Division of Genomic Technologies (http://www.riken.jp/en/research/labs/clst/genom_tech/). The course faculty consists of invited speakers from the RIKEN Division of Genomic Technologies and Karolinska Institutet. The course takes places at RIKEN Yokohama in Japan.

There is a limited number of travel stipends available for the course. If you wish to apply for such stipend support for this course, include a motivation for this in your course application. Stipend applications will be judged on the basis of the motivation in case there are more applications than available stipends. Otherwise, all travel, accommodation and living costs in Japan must be covered by the course participants.
Ytterligare kursledare The course director is Dr. Carsten Daub from Karolinska Institutet and the co-director is Dr. Piero Carninci from RIKEN Division of Genomic Technologies.
