We organise bioinformatic workshops for beginners and professionals focused on statistical data analysis in R,
RNA sequencing data analysis, chromatographic data processing and analysis in non-commercial programs. Our
workshops take place in Poznan, less than 270km from Berlin. It can be connected by highway, multiple trains and
bus lines.

Our courses last one or two days. We can also organise our workshop in your company or lab according to your
needs. If you are interested in individual training - contact us.
The offer below is directed to English speaking individuals. If you are interested in courses in Polish please

RNA-seq Data Analysis in R (Poznań/2-days workshop)

This course will start with a short introduction on the basics of R, and then we will present the specifics of
highthrouput RNA-seq analysis. Next, we will study the preliminary analysis of such data, i.e. quality analysis,
mapping, and preliminary filtration and normalization, and then we will proceed to higher-order analysis, i.e.
differential expression analysis, gene ontology. We provide practical knowledge supported by examples,
exercises and case study. The course aims to introduce the basics of analyzing big data sets such as NGS data.

Date: 27-28th March 2020 10:00-15:00

Place: Poznan (city center)

Group: max. 10 students

Language: English

Lecturer: Joanna Zyprych-Walczak, Ph.D.

Price: 399 EUR (+VAT). It's a special price for students who register before 15th January 2020. After that date,
the price can change.

Course content:

Brief introduction to R. Package dplyr.

Basic descriptive statistics: measures of central tendency, measures of dispersion, analysis of data
distribution

Basic plots

Basics of data visualization: the ggplot2 package

Introduction to RNA-seq and Bioconductor

Quality analysis, mapping, counts

Chi-square independence tests

Basic statistical tests for NGS data: edgeR, deseq, limma.

GO and KEGG analysis

Visualization of results

Case study
