June 25-29, 2012: New SIB course: “Analysis of differential gene expression”

Dear all,

We are pleased to announce a new SIB course:

“Analysis of differential gene expression”
(http://edu.isb-sib.ch/course/view.php?id=120)

which will take place in Lausanne during the week of 25-29 June 2012.

This one-week course will discuss the statistical analysis of differential gene expression, using RNA-seq, microarrays and qPCR data. Lectures will be conducted in the morning, and students will analyse actual gene expression data in the afternoon.

Prior knowledge of basic statistics and of the R statistical language is highly recommended, as is the knowledge of Unix and a scripting language (for some of the practicals). Exact requirements will be indicated closer to the beginning of the course; check the web page for details.

Registration is now open at
http://www.isb-sib.ch/edu/Registration/SIB_courses.php?id=161

The list of forthcoming SIB courses is available on the web at http://www.isb-sib.ch/education/

For the organizers,

Frédéric Schütz

May 15, 2012: SIB statistics workshop “Multivariate analysis for exploration and visualisation of biological data”

Dear all,

We are pleased to announce a SIB statistics workshop entitled:

Multivariate analysis for exploration and visualisation of biological data

This one day workshop, which will be held in Lausanne on Friday 25 May 2012, will discuss some of the most common methods for summarizing and creating graphical representations of multivariate data, such as principal component analysis (PCA), multidimensional scaling (MDS) and correspondence analysis (CA).

Further information as well as the registration page are available from

http://edu.isb-sib.ch/course/view.php?id=121

The number of seats is limited.

Hope to see you there !

For the organizers,

Frédéric Schütz

Fri Apr 17, 2012: SIB Bioinformatics Workshop: “Advanced Mass-Spectrometry based Proteomics: quantification and post-translational modifications”

Dear All,

We are pleased to announce a new SIB Bioinformatics Workshop 2012 entitled:
"Advanced Mass-Spectrometry based Proteomics: quantification and post-translational modifications"
http://edu.isb-sib.ch/course/view.php?id=116

The goal of the workshop, to be held on Friday 27th April 2012, is to give theoretical and practical knowledge on the mass spectrometry (MS) techniques used in proteomics for the characterization of post-translational modifications (PTMs) and the quantitation of protein in complex mixtures.

The course will cover the following main subjects:

- Strategies for PTM identification in proteins by MS: theory & concepts
- PTM data analysis practical examples and exercises: phosphorylation
- Quantitation of proteins by MS: labeled and unlabeled strategies
- Quantitative workflows and examples of applications.

It is assumed that participants will have some knowledge of modern MS-based proteomics techniques.
This course is  conceived as the follow-up to the course "Introduction to Mass Spectrometry-based Proteomics" that was organized in 2010 and 2011 in Lausanne.

Registration is now open.

For the organizers,
Vassilios Ioannidis
