The use of web-based bioinformatics tools is covered in detail. Lab exercises support topics presented. Texts and Materials:.
Use our interactive comparison tool to identify the best sequencing instrument for your lab and applications. The latest informatics tools help scientists gain insights from a growing body of complex genomic data. To assemble an effective bioinformatics solution, you will want to consider the entire ecosystem—from infrastructure setup to data analysis and interpretation. Contact an Illumina representative for regional availability. Overview iScan. All Systems. Sequencing systems for every lab.
Description : We aim to introduce the broad frontiers of bioinformatics topics from fundamental algorithms to practical tools. The first week of this course will introduce necessary backgrounds in molecular biology and computer science to understand the content of the entire course. This course is designed for the entry level bioinformatics graduate students.
RNA sequencing using Ion Torrent next-generation sequencing NGS is a higher sensitivity, affordable, and simple alternative to gene expression analysis using microarrays. With increased sensitivity and the ability for both discovery and routine gene expression assays, NGS expands your research capabilities. RNA-Seq provides a wider dynamic range and greater sensitivity allowing you to use less starting material and see low-level expression changes that may have been missed with microarrays. RNA sequencing provides hypothesis-free whole-transcriptome analysis.
