ChIP-Seq course

Differential protein binding to DNA using ChIP-Seq data and the Galaxy platform

Your profit: This course covers topics regarding experimental design of ChIP-Seq experiments, introduction and considerations for NGS sequencing, hands on sessions to get from raw sequencing data to peaks using the Galaxy platform [1], QCs, sample visualizations and the statistical analyses of differential protein binding to DNA using R and the DiffBind package [2]. You will create an integrated report using RStudio and R Markdown [3] and have the opportunity to analyze your own data or a published dataset of interest.
