Overview

BDG LifeSciences (OPC) Pvt. Ltd. India is a Bioinformatics company and is conducting Training, Novel Research Projects, Workshops & Online Courses in technologies of Bioinformatics since 2010. To date, we have successfully trained hundreds of participants who were not only students but scientists, faculties, professors, company executives, etc from India and other countries. As we believe in a different way of learning which is HANDS-ON PRACTICAL SESSIONS our workshops are unique because participants perform on their own computer/laptop on software/servers, so it is practical application of technology which is the main reason of our success where we have conducted 250+ workshops around the world on latest technologies of Bioinformatics especially Drug Discovery & Designing, MD Simulations, NGS Data Analysis and Gene & Genome Editing by CRISPR/Cas9.

We are glad to announce 2-day Technical Hands-on Bioinformatics Workshop on Next Generation Sequencing Data Analysis | Whole Genome (DNA) Sequencing & RNASeq in Mumbai, India. It will be an extensive 2-day training program for which participants have to bring their own laptop having Windows/Mac/Linux so the participants can use that for running the processes on their own computer systems- HANDS-ON with complete learning of Next Generation Sequencing Data Analysis. The course will be of great help to students/ researchers/ faculty/ scientists in learning this latest science and technology.

TOPICS

  • Introduction to Bioinformatics
  • Understanding Genomics and Bioinformatics
  • Various Databases, Browsers and Tools (NCBI; e.g. Gene Bank and PubMed, ENA, UCSC, BLAST etc.).
  • Gene Finding and Genome Visualizations.
  • Data Retrieval (e.g. Searching SRA Data from NCBI).
  • Introduction to NGS.
  • Various NGS Platforms (Video)
  • Discuss the Advantages and Limitations of the Sequencing Technology and Role of Bioinformatics
  • Various File Formats in NGS
  • Reads Quality Check
  • Alignment of Reads using Reference Genome
  • Mapping of Aligned Reads to the Reference Genome
  • Variant Calling/ Variant Detection  for Mutations

PRACTICAL APPLICATION
In the workshop, we will perform 2 experiments to analyze the example DNASeq & RNASeq Data. Hands-on exercises will be performed individually using software tools on your own laptops. No prior software experience is required.

SCHEDULE | DAY 1
EXPERIMENT 1
In this lesson, we will focus on the SNPs and Variant Analysis (VC) of the DNASeq data and cover:

  • Deal with the raw data for quality evaluation and filtering
  • Map reads to the reference genomes, call SNPs and predict their phenotype consequence
  • Alignment to a reference genome, SNPs and In-dels Calling of next generation DNA data

SCHEDULE | DAY 2
EXPERIMENT 2 In this lesson, we will focus on the Differential expression of Genes (DEGs) of the RNASeq data and will cover:

  • Upload Data
  • Convert File Format
  • Align Reads To Reference Genome
  • View The Mapped Reads In JBrowse
  • Count Reads Per Gene
  • Test For Differential Expression
  • Differential Gene Expression
  • MDS Plot
  • MA Plot
  • Volcano Plot
  • Parallel Coordinates and Heatmap
  • Investigate Differentially-Expressed Genes
  • Chord Diagram
