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”

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

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

For the organizers,

Frédéric Schütz
