Introduction to gene regulation

Trainer Pieter De Bleser
BITS Courses TRAINING AT VIB

Goal

To give researchers insight and hands-on experience in the analysis of the regulation of eukaryotic gene expression programs at the transcriptional and post-transcriptional levels and their connection to signaling pathways, using exploratory bioinformatic approaches.

Summary

This course presents a comprehensive overview of the principles and applications of studying eukaryotic gene regulation. The course combines lectures with hands-on exercises in which the participants learn to apply these principles to real data. The course will be based on freely available data and software.

Prerequisites

This training is intended for people with basic knowledge of molecular biology. BITS provides 15 laptops for their training sessions. Depending on the number of participants (max 20), it is possible that you have to share the laptop with one other participant but you can also choose to bring your own laptop for this training session.

Schedule

See the TRAINING AT VIB website for a detailed schedule of this training.
