Default 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


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.

Lecture 1: Data distributions

random variables
population and samples

Hands-On 1: Introduction to R

Lecture 2: Creating high-quality graphics in R

Visualizing data in 1D, 2D & more than two dimensions
Data transformations

Hands-On 2: Graphics with base R and ggplot2

Session 2 – Hypothesis testing

Tuesday - 09:30 to 17:30

Lecture 1: Hypothesis testing theory
