Dear all,

we are pleased to announce a new SIB course entitled:

"Advanced transcriptomics analysis".

This five-day course, which will be held in Lausanne during the week  
of June 17-21 2013,  picks up from where the Introduction to  
microarray analysis/Analysis of differential gene expression courses  
left, and explores how transcriptomics data can be further integrated  
and interpreted to yield biologically relevant information. It will be  
assumed that participants have knowledge corresponding to the  
Introduction to microarray analysis/Analysis of differential gene  
expression course, in particular concerning normalization of  
microarray and RNAseq data and how to find differentially expressed  
genes between different conditions in a single dataset.

The course will consist of theory and practical exercises.  
Participants should bring their own computers with the R statistical  
software installed. In line with the prerequisites indicated above,  
participants should ideally already know how to conduct a simple  
microarray or RNAseq data analysis with R and Bioconductor.

We plan to cover the following topics:
* How and where to find external data, and how to integrate  
transcriptomics data from different platforms. Use of data  
repositories such as GEO and TCGA, gene mapping and cross-platform  
matching, gene identifiers, etc. Meta-analysis.
* Prediction, classification and clustering of high-dimensional data.  
Finding gene signatures and validating them in independent data sets.
* Data structures for transcriptomics analysis with R.
* Annotation resources.
* Gene set/pathway analysis.
* Integration of transcriptomics data with other types of genomic data.

Further information and the registration are available from


The number of seats is limited.

Hope to see you there!

For the organizers,
Charlotte Soneson
