Särskild behörighet
Kursens syfte To increase the understanding of the basic principles of bioinformatics and to gain practical skills in bioinformatics analysis of genomic sequencing data.
Kursens lärandemål After the completed course, the participants will be able to understand the principles and perform basic bioinformatics analysis of genomics sequencing data. The participants will be able to plan experimental designs and to 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 preparatory work, lectures, discussion, seminars and hands-on bioinformatics analysis.
Obligatoriska moment The preparation is done in the first course week without the need to be present on-site. Week 2 consists of tasks, lectures, discussions, seminars and hands-on practicals. Both parts are compulsory. Absence has to be compensated for according to the instructions from the course leader.
Examination The students will be examined for all learning outcomes by their performance in (a) submitted replies to tasks given for course week 1, (b) discussions and quizzes during the course week 2, and (c) individual presentations at the last course day of their bioinformatics analysis results conducted during course week 2.
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. Note that during the first week of the course the participants will work on their own at their own departments and there is no room/study space booked for this part. The second week of the course takes place at CMB, KI, seminar room A216, entrance Berzelius v 35.
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.
