Hands on Workshop on
“RNA library preparation, Transcriptome Analysis with R”
December 26-30, 2022

The Bio-IT Centre at IBAB is organizing a five-day online workshop on “Hands on Workshop on “RNA library preparation, RNA Sequencing analysis with R Dec 26-30, 2022 . This workshop will provide hands-on training in RNA isolation, qualitative and quantitative analysis, library preparation for RNA profiling of RNA libraries using tapestation and an introduction to NGS sequencing platforms. Basic Linux and R command line, RNA seq data analysis, Processing NGS data, aligning and counting reads, differential gene expression analysis, Pathway analysis.

TargetAudience: The course is aimed at students, researchers, and technicians who wish to employ NGS sequencing approaches in their work but may not have sufficient training in/awareness of library preparation, a key step in data analysis, and data analysis using R. Ph.D. scholars/postdoctoral fellows/JRFs/faculty involved in pure experimental biological research are encouraged to apply. The course will also be beneficial to those pursuing M.Sc./ M.Tech. in Biotechnology/Life Sciences/Microbiology/Biosciences who may be interested in transitioning to molecular biology/ bioinformatics-focused opportunities in academia or industry. Teachers from undergraduate and postgraduate teaching institutions and research institutes across Karnataka are also encouraged to apply. Please note that minimal eligibility is pursuing a Bachelor’s degree.

Twenty-five candidates will be selected for this workshop on a first-come basis.
