Workshops for biotech research
Our 2016-2017 workshop series is now open, offering workshops for researchers from academia and industry. These workshops are being supported, in part, by a grant from the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT).
April 4-8: GRO-seq Libary Construction Workshop
The BioFrontiers Next-Gen Sequencing Facility and the Robin Dowell Lab are offered a five-day workshop on GRO-seq library construction. The workshop is a hands-on library construction workshop for GRO-Seq libraries for Illumina sequencing. GRO-Seq (Global Run–On SEQuencing) measures only actively transcribed RNA as opposed to steady-state RNA levels that are traditionally measured.
June 6-17: Short-Read Sequencing Analysis
The goal of this workshop is to teach the fundamental computational skills necessary for many short read sequencing analyses. In the first five days of this course participants will learn basic Unix/Linux, how to use large compute servers, sequencing read quality control, and read mapping. In the second week we cover the basic fundamentals of commonly used genomic short read sequencing approaches including basic pipelines for genome re-sequencing, ChIP-Seq and differential expression for RNA-Seq. Our goal is to provide the basic skills necessary for participants to learn how to analyze their own data after the course (though some self-study after the course will be necessary).
Coming soon: workshops on high-speed computing and advanced imaging.
