AN INTERDISCIPLINARY THINK TANK FOR CREATIVE SCIENCE

The Mediterranean Institute for Life Sciences – MedILS, in Split, Croatia, is envisioned as an international centre of excellence for molecular biology. It is located in a park on one of the most beautiful stretches of the Croatian Adriatic coast.  MedILS offers a unique setting for high-quality workshops and conferences, with multiple fully equipped lecture rooms and halls.


Guests are accommodated in comfortable rooms with air-conditioning, private bathrooms, telephone, and high-speed internet. Three meals per day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) and coffee breaks with snacks can be organized on site.


Group sessions can also be held outside in the Institute’s park where benches, desks, and wireless Internet access are available. The location enables a number of possibilities for after-work leisure activities, including swimming at nearby beaches, running and hiking in the forests of Marjan state park, or playing basketball at the Institute’s private court. The city of Split with its picturesque old town offers plenty of restaurants, bars, and shops for social activities and can be reached in 20 minutes by foot, or in five minutes by bus or car.

MedILS Bioinformatics School in Transcriptomics

We invite participants enthusiastic about science, new technologies, biology, big data analysis, and those curious to learn new things. The School will introduce participants to the latest advances in next-generation sequencing (NGS) and most commonly used bioinformatics tools and methods to analyse transcriptomics data. Hands-on sessions will give participants the opportunity to reinforce the analysis concepts they learned and work on practical examples, focusing on RNA-seq data analysis. The participants will also have a chance to get advice related to their own research questions during the last day’s Q&A session.

 

During this School you will:

  • Learn the basics of next-generation sequencing (NGS)
  • Understand the basics of NGS analysis, data formats, data repositories and genome browsers
  • Compare different gene expression technologies (RNA-Seq vs Microarray)
  • Use web-based Galaxy platform for RNA-Seq data analysis
  • Perform downstream analyses (clustering, classification, and other machine learning approaches) on differentially expressed genes

 

When: October 25 – 29, 2021

Where: Mediterranean Institute for Life Sciences (MedILS), Split, Croatia

Target group: 

  • Young researchers (Master students, PhD students, postdocs), but experienced researchers are also welcome!
  • The School is intended for participants with no or limited prior experience in computational biology/bioinformatics.
