High Throughput Sequencing in Disease Studies


UCL Bloomsbury Campus (link Map)
Gower Street | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

A series of short courses from UCL Genetics Institute - Bloomsbury Centre for Genetic Epidemiology and Statistics.

Rapidly developing technologies now allow genomes to be sequenced more quickly and cheaply than ever before. This course will cover state of the art methods and applications of next generation sequencing. Participants will be introduced to tools for analysing high throughput sequence data, including methods for measuring copy number variants and allelespecific expression, and conducting disease association analysis with sequence data.

There will be considerable opportunities to gain practical experience with new data types such as whole genome sequence, RNA- and ChIP-seq data. By the end of the course, participants will have a broad knowledge of current methods and applications and will be well equipped to analyse their own data.

This course follows the companion course “Introduction to Genetic Epidemiology in the GWAS era”.
