New training sessions in Nov 2021

'Shodhaka' announces another round of its popular online training programs for both basic and advanced data analysis in the omics domain, including the functional analysis of genes and proteins. The courses are designed for biotech students, scientists and other professionals. A tentative schedule is indicated here.

Hands-on training in genomic and transcriptomic data analysis for scientists [but open to interested students and freshers also].

Day 1: An overview of genome and genomics [theoretical sessions with discussions; free and open to all registered participants]
Day 2: An overview of sequencing technologies (mainly NGS) [theoretical sessions with discussions; free and open to all registered participants]
Day 3: An overview of transcriptomic and other NGS applications [theoretical sessions with discussions; free and open to all registered participants]
Day 4: An overview of NGS data-analysis and workflow (FASTQ format & depth); Screening & downloading raw data from public repositories: GEO, SRA & ENA [demo & hands-on]*
Day 5: Quality analysis and trimming of raw reads; Reference alignment of NGS reads [demo & hands-on]*
Day 6: Quantifying genes and transcripts per sample [demo & hands-on]*
Day 7: Functional analysis of gene-clusters [demo & hands on]**
Day 8: Molecular interaction analysis, part-1 (PPIs) [demo & hands on] **
Day 9: Molecular interaction analysis, part-2 (pathways) [demo & hands on] **
Day 10: Molecular interaction analysis, part-3 (ncRNAs) [demo & hands on]**
Day 11: Promoter analysis, (JASPER & CLOVER analysis) [demo & hands on]**
Day 12: Molecular interaction visualization [demo & hands on]**

Other topics to be announced: Data mining in general and biocuration (basic module).

Additional sessions on metagenomics, proteomics, programming, Linux operations etc are available on demands. Please see the training pages on our website for details
[http://www.shodhaka.net/training.html].

Please note that each day's sessions will be one to two hours in the afternoon or evening [Indian time], and online. Except the first four days sessions shall have a demonstration of the use of key databases and software, and interactions with experts, followed by assignments - which the participants are expected to practice and discuss with experts the next day if there are any doubts. These course can be custom-designed too! Please contact us for details.

**Topics for molecular functional analysis (intermediate module)
