After 5:30 pm Beer event in Biocev campus

Learn how to explore heterogeneity within cell population, find cell subpopulations, gene correlations using single-cell analysis, how to interpret and apply single-cell data in biological studies

Target audience: Medium to Advanced qPCR users

Entrance qualifications: Hands-on qPCR TATAA course or similar knowledge

Description: In this course you will learn to recognize the difference between cell population and single-cell analysis and how to interpret and apply single-cell data in biological studies. Practical training in cell collection, gene expression profiling and data analysis at the single-cell level is included. The course contains:

  • Overview of single-cell biology: methods, examples and trends
  • Cell population versus single-cell approach
  • Cell collection methods, dicsussion about FACS, automated cell picking CellCelector
  • Gene expression profiling workflow RT, qPCR, (NGS), quality control
  • Single-cell data analysis, including practical examples (Genex)
microRNA analysis
TATAA Biocenter 1 day course

After 5:30 pm Beer event in Biocev campus

Learn how to extract and analyze miRNA with appropriate technique!

Target audience: Researchers interested in analyzing microRNA.

Entrance qualifications: Basic knowledge about microRNA and molecular analyses.

Description: This course introduces miRNA including its variant forms. Methods to extract and purify microRNA and prepare it for analysis including quality control. Methods for microRNA analysis are presented and compared, to learn how to choose the best method for each study. - Analysis of microRNA data is also discussed including challenging involving normalization. In the course you will learn:

  • microRNA background
  • miRNA sampling, extraction and quality control
  • microRNA analysis with microarray, NGS, RT-qPCR methods
  • Data analysis and interpretation
  • Liquid biopsies
  • Introduction to functional studies
NGS - Library construction and quality control

Learn how to setup an NGS experiment and choose the right application for your research topic.

Target audience: Researchers interested in NGS

Entrance qualifications: Basic knowledge about molecular analyses.

Description: This course gives an introduction to Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) and its many applications. Focus will be on considerations for the NGS experimental design, the different sequencing platforms and applications, quality control of samples and library preparation techniques.  The course contains:

  • Introduction to NGS (History and background)
  • Applications (Genome, Transcriptome, Metagenome etc.)
  • Sample preparation and quality control
  • Library preparation
  • Instrumentation and platforms
  • Experimental design
