STATegra Summer School on NGS and Data Integration

24th and 28th of September 2018 in Pamplona (lectures available online – see below)

The Unit of Translational Bioinformatics organized the STATegra Summer School on NGS and Data Integration. The TransBio/STATegra Summer Schoolwas a unique environment where multidisciplinary researchers were lecturing and conducting hands-on sessions on statistical analysis and visualization of multi-omics data.

The STATegra Summer School took place between the 24th and 28th of September in Pamplona.

  • The venue was Navarrabiomed.
  • We consider necessary some background in R or other programming languages. The school will NOT require advanced programming skills, but some preliminary experience.

The STATegra Summer School built over previous experiences:

  • I STATegra Summer School (Benicassim, September 2015), evaluated 9 over 10. Lectures available here.
  • Casym Summer School, Stockholm, June 2015. Lectures available here.

The school was designed to be mainly a hands-on based school, where students will face real-data and real challenges. The first part of the course reviews single-omic analysis (RNA-seq, ATAC-seq, DNA Methylation and single-cell RNA-seq), while the second part addresses integrative tools (including network analysis, multi-omics PCA, Meta-analysis and multi-omic Visualization among others).
