Kursansvarig institution Institutionen för medicin, Solna
Särskild behörighet Basic knowledge in molecular biology from undergraduate level.
Kursens syfte The purpose of this course is to equip the students that work mainly in wet lab, with several bioinformatic tools commonly used in molecular biology and genetics.
Kursens lärandemål By the end of the course the participants should be able to:
- use the command line interface (a text-based means of interacting with a computer),
- download from omics databases
- know how to apply the basic principles for analyzing high-throughput sequencing data analysis and genome-wide association studies.
- know how to perform logistic, linear regression and clustering analysis in python.
- have the foundations to perform by themselves the taught data analysis techniques.
Kursens innehåll High-throughput sequencing data analysis (RNA-seq and ChIP-seq), genome-wide association studies, genome browsers, plotting methods, logistic, linear regression and clustering in python.
Arbetsformer The course consists primarily of hands-on computer exercises, and a limited number of lectures.
Obligatoriska moment Practical sessions are compulsory, unless stated they are not. Absence has to be compensated for in agreement with the course organizer. The examination is compulsory.
Examination An individual project consisting of a practical exercise and a final seminar discussing each other's projects in small groups in line with the intended learning outcomes of the course.
Kurslitteratur och övriga läromedel Specific literature for each of the topics will be distributed during the course. Students should bring their own computer and be prepared to install the software required for the course. The admitted students will be contacted in advance by the course organizers with instructions for the installation process.
Antal studenter 10 - 25
Urval av studenter Wet lab students without prior bioinformatics experience are given priority (use the motivation text field to specify), and secondarily date for registration as a doctoral student (priority given to earlier registration date).
