Lightbulb FINAL CALL: DNA Methylation Data Analysis Workshop

FINAL CALL: DNA Methylation Data Analysis
How to use bisulfite-treated sequencing to study DNA methylation

Link to workshop page

When?
22. - 25. November 2016

Where?
iad Pc-Pool, Rosa-Luxemburg-Straße 23, Leipzig, Germany


Scope and Topics
The purpose of this workshop is to get a deeper understanding of the use of bisulfite-treated DNA in order to analyze the epigenetic layer of DNA methylation. Advantages and disadvantages of the so-called 'bisulfite sequencing' and its implications on data analyses will be covered. The participants will be trained to understand bisulfite-treated NGS data, to detect potential problems/errors and finally to implement their own pipelines. After this course they will be able to analyze DNA methylation and create ready-to-publish graphics.

By the end of this workshop the participants will:
  • be familiar with the sequencing method of Illumina
  • understand how bisulfite sequencing works
  • be aware of the mapping problem of bisulfite-treated data
  • understand how bisulfite-treated reads are mapped to a reference genome
  • be familiar with common data formats and standards
  • know relevant tools for data processing
  • automate tasks with shell scripting to create reusable data pipelines
  • perform basic analyses (call methylated regions, perform basic downstream analyses)
  • plot and visualize results (ready-to-publish)
  • be able to reuse all analyses

Target Audience
  • biologists or data analysts with no or little experience in analyzing bisulfite sequencing data

Requirements
  • basic understanding of molecular biology (DNA, RNA, gene expression, PCR, ...)
  • the data analysis will partly take place on the linux commandline. Is is therefore beneficial to be familiar with the commandline and in particular the commands covered in the Learning the Shell Tutorial

Included in the Course
  • Course materials
  • Catering
  • Conference Dinner

Trainers
  • Helene Kretzmer (University of Leipzig) is working on DNA methylation analyses using high-throughput sequencing since 2011. She is responsible for the bioinformatic analysis of MMML-Seq study of the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC).
  • Dr. Christian Otto (CCR-BioIT) is one of the developers of the bisulfite read mapping tool segemehl and is an expert on implementing efficient algorithms for HTS data analyses.
  • Dr. David Langenberger (ecSeq Bioinformatics) started working with small non-coding RNAs in 2006. Since 2009 he uses HTS technolgies to investigate these short regulatory RNAs as well as other targets. He has been part of several large HTS projects, for example the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC).
  • Dr. Mario Fasold (ecSeq Bioinformatics) has developed several bioinformatics tools such as the Bioconductor package AffyRNADegradation and the Larpack program package. Since 2011 he is specialized in the field of HTS data analysis and helped analysing sequecing data of several large consortium projects.
