|Literature||Will be announced during the course|
|636-0202-00L||Lab Course: Next-Generation Sequencing |
Does not take place this semester.
Only for Biotechnology MSc, Programme Regulations 2017.
Attention: this lab course will be offered again in Spring semester 2019.
|2 credits||5P||R. Paro, S. Reddy|
|Abstract||The Lab Course will take place Monday/Tuesday 9-17h, 10 days in total, start of this lab course is on Monday, September 25 2017.|
|Objective||Students shall obtain a basic understanding in NGS and its application in transcription profiling including theoretical considerations when starting an RNA-seq experiment and the practical hands-on work of library preparation and usage of bioinformatics tools for data analysis.|
|Content||Introduction to NGS technologies and applications. Design of an RNA-seq transcription profiling experiment. Specific treatment of cells (+/- signal-induction) and RNA extraction. Handling and quality control of RNA samples. Sequencing library preparation starting with total RNA. Quality control and quantification of the libraries. Setup of an NGS run and sequencing of the prepared RNA-seq libraries using the NextSeq 500 system. Analysis of the generated sequence data: sequence data QC, criteria for run performance and quality of data; pre-processing of the raw data; mapping sequence reads to a reference sequence; quantification of transcript abundance and differential gene expression.|
|Lecture notes||Material will be provided during the course|
