Post Course: Summer courses @ Edinburgh Genomics

We have more great courses running at Edinburgh Genomics this summer. All taught by experienced bioinformatics tutors, these courses will help you progress your skills quickly, and hopefully enjoyably too!

Introduction to Python for Biologists - 8-12 July 2019

Python is a dynamic, readable language that is a popular platform for all types of bioinformatics work, from simple one-off scripts to large, complex software projects.

This workshop is aimed at complete beginners and assumes no prior programming experience. It gives an overview of the language with an emphasis on practical problem-solving, using examples and exercises drawn from various aspects of bioinformatics work.

Tutor: Dr Martin Jones (founder of

Registration fee: 550 (including lunches and refreshments)

Introduction to RNA-seq Data Analysis 5-7 August 2019

RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) is the method of choice for transcriptome profiling. Nevertheless, it is a non-trivial task to transform the vast amount of data obtained with high-throughput sequencers into useful information. Thus, RNA-seq data analysis is still a major bottleneck for most researchers in this field. The ability of correctly interpreting RNA-seq results, as well as knowledge on the intrinsic properties of these data, are essential to avoid incorrect experimental designs and the application of inappropriate analysis methodologies.

The aim of this workshop is to familiarise researchers with RNA-seq data and to initiate them in the analysis by providing lectures and practicals on analysis methodologies. In the practicals Illumina-generated sequencing data and various widely used software programs will be used.

Tutors: Dr Frances Turner, Dr Urmi Trivedi
