Understanding how to generate sequences and interpret information.

4>7 SEPTEMBER 2018 Epigenetcis on the top of genetics

This practical course is addressed to researchers with a background in biology willing to perform basic analysis of epigenetic data. We will focus on data produced by next generation sequencing. Topics will include, but will not be limited to: DNA methylation, histone modifications, small RNA, chromatin conformation. Analysis will be performed on study cases in humans and plants. 

Registration  from 1st June to 15 August 2018

25>27 JULY 2018 Data crunching: from hell to heaven

This practical course is addressed to researchers with a background in biology willing to perform basic analysis on next generation sequencing data. Each topic will consist of frontal introduction and practical work to enable participants to familiarize with the tools and the Unix environment. Hands-on work will be performed by simulating a real analysis on data generated by an Illumina platform. The declared aim of this course is to become self-sufficient in basic NGS data analysis. Teachers and tutors will assist each participant to reach the objectives of the course.

Registration from 25th May to 15th July 2018.

Scheda corso


Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) has recently revolutionized the approach to genomic studies enabling the sequencing of billions of bases in massively parallel reactions. These new sequencing technologies collectively referred to as ”ultra-deep” sequencing or “massively parallel” sequencing are currently used for SNP discovery, detection of structural variants, genome-wide measurement of transcript levels, analysis of epigenetic modifications and a number of other applications, and are revolutionizing biological research. IGA courses are addressed to researchers interested in understanding how to generate sequences and interpret information obtained. 

The courses alternate theoretical concepts and practical examples to familiarize with the tools.
