CBI’s short courses in bioinformatics and genomics

launched January and February 2013

Overview of Web-Accessible Genomics Databases (Iyer)
This World Tour of Genomics Tools and Resources will introduce the researcher to the vast array of resources that are available to carry out the routine to complicated genomic analysis.

Analysis of Gene Expression Arrays (Logvinenko)
This course will teach students how to use R to analyze expression microarray data from common Affymetrix and Illumina platforms.

RNA-Seq (Ainsley, Iyer)
To help the Tufts community take advantage of the data available with
next generation sequencing techniques, this course will teach the basics of obtaining and analyzing RNA-Seq data.

ChIP-seq methods and analysis (Schnitzler)
In this one week course, students will learn how to design a ChIP-seq experiment and prepare samples for sequencing, and how to analyze and interpret the sequencing results.

Genetic Association Studies (Paulus, Castaldi)
This course will introduce learners to the background concepts necessary to conduct and interpret genetic association studies and GWAS.
