  • FINAL CALL: Epigenetics Workshop - DNA Methylation Data Analysis

    DNA Methylation Data Analysis
    How to use bisulfite-treated sequencing to study DNA methylation

    Link to workshop page

    When?
    29. November - 1. December 2017

    Where?
    PC-College, Stresemannstraße 78, 10963 Berlin, Germany


    Scope and Topics
    The purpose of this workshop is to get a deeper understanding of the use of bisulfite-treated DNA in order to analyze the epigenetic layer of DNA methylation. Advantages and disadvantages of the so-called 'bisulfite sequencing' and its implications on data analyses will be covered. The participants will be trained to understand bisulfite-treated NGS data, to detect potential problems/errors and finally to implement their own pipelines. After this course they will be able to analyze DNA methylation and create ready-to-publish graphics.

    By the end of this workshop the participants will:
    • be familiar with the sequencing method of Illumina
    • understand how bisulfite sequencing works
    • be aware of the mapping problem of bisulfite-treated data
    • understand how bisulfite-treated reads are mapped to a reference genome
    • be familiar with common data formats and standards
    • know relevant tools for data processing
    • automate tasks with shell scripting to create reusable data pipelines
    • perform basic analyses (call methylated regions, perform basic downstream analyses)
    • plot and visualize results (ready-to-publish)
    • be able to reuse all analyses


    Target Audience
    • biologists or data analysts with no or little experience in analyzing bisulfite sequencing data


    Requirements
    • basic understanding of molecular biology (DNA, RNA, gene expression, PCR, ...)
    • the data analysis will partly take place on the linux commandline. Is is therefore beneficial to be familiar with the commandline and in particular the commands covered in the Learning the Shell Tutorial


    Included in the Course
    • Course materials
    • Catering
    • Conference Dinner


    Trainers
    • Dr. Helene Kretzmer (Max Planck Institut for Molecular Genetics) is working on DNA methylation analyses using high-throughput sequencing since 2011. She was responsible for the bioinformatic analysis of MMML-Seq study of the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC).
    • Dr. Christian Otto (ecSeq Bioinformatics GmbH) is one of the developers of the bisulfite read mapping tool segemehl and is an expert on implementing efficient algorithms for HTS data analyses.

    Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
    by seqadmin


    New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”

    A major leap in the field has
