Lightbulb StatSeq meeting on RNA-Seq; European Science Foundation – COST action

Workshop on RNA-Seq &
Strategy Session on Joint grant proposals

The ESF ‘StatSeq’ COST action on the statistical challenges from next-generation sequencing organizes a meeting in Vienna including a workhop on RNA-Seq (24 and 25 March) and a strategy session for identifying opportunities for collaboration and applications for joint funding (26 March).

You are cordially invited!

Please visit the meeting pages at !

The Call for contributed talks and posters is currently open!

Workshop focus and topics for Discussion:

What have we learnt from applying RNA-Seq to complex tissues / organisms with rich transcriptomes such as mammals or plants?

* Novel biological insights
* Current experimental challenges
* Recent advances in computational analysis (processing, identifying biologically relevant signals, statistics, ...)
* Current computational challenges

What have we learnt from calibrating and validating RNA-Seq?

* Recent methodological advances
* Benchmarks and comparisons (variant protocols or relative to other technologies)
* Current methodological challenges
* Recent advances in computational analysis (processing, bias removal, calibration, ...)
* Current computational challenges

Currently confirmed keynote speakers:

José Jiménéz-Gomez, Max-Planck-Institute Köln

José has been an early adopter of RNA-Seq for the study of polymorphisms and expression profiles in tomato and its wild relatives. His research group is interested in the natural variation, evolution, and domestication of plants.

Hannes Ponstingl, The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, Cambridge

Hannes has been responsible for the development of modern algorithms for read mapping like SMALT and SSAHA2, that form the foundation of RNA-Seq.

Micha Sammeth, Centre Nacional d'Anŕlisi Genňmica, Barcelona

In the Flux Project, Micha has developed an approach for capturing the individual steps of the complete RNA-Seq process. This allows to model the impact of each step on measurement characteristics.

Programm committee: WG1 members of the COST action Management Committee
Session chairs: David Kreil & Petri Auvinen
Local organizers: Paweł Łabaj, Smriti Shridhar

Registrations and reimbursements will be handled by the office of Marco Bink.
