BIOI4450 High Throughput Data Analysis 5 ECTS
Organised by
Preceding studies

General description

This course is the continuation of Biological Data Analysis with R, introducing professional methods for analyzing high-throughput data, such as DNA microarray and next-generation sequencing data.

Learning outcomes

After this course the students will be able to analyze high-throughput data from very diverse experiments including microaarray and next generation sequencing data. They will be able to handle and analyze such data, and help experimental scientist in the interpretation. Lectures will introduce the theoretical aspects of the introduced methodologies, and after that, students will have opportunity to explore the practical ways of performing the analyses by obligatory homework exercises. This course will provide the students knowledge about state-of-the-art methodologies and the related data analysis practices.


1. Flow cytometry: counting and sorting stained cells
2. Next-generation sequencing: introduction and genomic applications
3. Quantitative transcriptomics: qRT-PCR
4. Advanced transcriptomics: gene expression microarrays
5. Next-generation sequencing in transcriptomics: RNA-seq experiments
6. Deciphering the regulome: from CHIP to CHIP-seq
