This two-day workshop will introduce the basic concepts of comparative and functional -omics data analysis in plants through lectures and practical hands-on sessions. Both plant biologists and geneticists with an interest in bioinformatics, data analysis, and comparative & regulatory genomics should attend this training.  After this workshop, you will have a good understanding of the organization and evolution of plant gene families and know how to extract relevant biological information from -omics gene sets.

Prerequisites: basic knowledge of genes, genomes, transcript profiling, BLAST, homology, Gene Ontology (no programming skills are required).

Topics:

  • Introduction plant comparative genomics (genes, gene families, synteny analysis) + introduction PLAZA platform
  • Functional characterization of plant genes (Families, GO, InterPro)
  • Gene set analysis for different plant -omics data sets:
    • functional interpretation of RNA-Seq and ChIP-Seq genes using the PLAZA Workbench
    • co-expression and Transcription Factor analysis

Organised by ELIXIR Belgium and the VIB Bioinformatics Core for EPS
