Dear all,

We are pleased to announce the following course from the Doctoral 
Program StarOmics and organized by the SIB Swiss Institute 
of**Bioinformatics

*"DNA METHYLATION AND METHYLOME ANALYSIS WITH NGS"*

The course will take place in Fribourg from February 13 to February 16, 
2017.


Methylations of the DNA are important modifications that affect the DNA 
of bacteria and higher eucaryotes. The DNA can be modified on different 
bases (6mA, 4mC, 5mC) and these modifications have various effects, 
e.g., on gene expression or protection against foreign DNA. These 
modifications can be transmitted from generation to generation, they are 
called epigenetics modifications. Current next generation sequencing 
technologies allow for the detection of those modifications at the 
genome level introducing the « methylome ». In addition Histone 
modifications are also part of the epigenomics modifications that can 
influence gene expression. These modification can be analyzed by NGS 
methods. In this workshop we will study the methods used to produce and 
to analyze this NGS data.
