Summary

Explorative analysis of in vivo transcription factor binding sites using public ChIP-seq data and web-based analysis tools.

Content

The ChIP-seq server is a web-based bioinformatics analysis platform developed and maintained by the Bucher group. It offers access to a large database of public data. At the beginning of the course, each student will select a ChIP-seq data sample from the ChIP-seq server menu. The subsequent analysis of the data sample will focus on the following tasks:

During the work, students will familiarize themselves with a number of in-house developed and external bioinformatics resources:  ChIP-seq server, Signal Search analysis (SSA), PWMTools , MEME-ChIP, GREAT and Nebula.

At the end of the course, each student will summarize the results obtained in a research paper-like format.

 

Note

Note that while the course is open to all first year EPFL doctoral students, priority will be given to EDMS students, given that they are mandated to take three of EDMS practical modules. Note also that doctoral students from the Bucher laboratory cannot take this course. Access is limited to 4 students.
