Course -Genomics with R and Bioconductor - Berlin 16-20 September 2019
 
Dear all,

still a few places on our course " Genomics with R and Bioconductor"

Where: Free University (FU) Berlin (Germany)

When: 16-20 September 2019

Instructor: Dr. Ludwig Geistlinger - CUNY Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy, New York (USA)

Registration deadline: August 20th

Course:

This course will provide biologists and bioinformaticians with practical statistical analysis skills to perform rigorous analysis of high-throughput genomic data. The course assumes basic familiarity with genomics and with R programming, but does not assume prior statistical training. It covers the statistical concepts necessary to design experiments and analyze high-throughput data generated by next-generation sequencing, including: exploratory data analysis, principal components analysis, clustering, differential expression, and gene set analysis.
