The ESF ‘StatSeq’ COST action on the statistical challenges from next-generation sequencing organizes a meeting in Vienna including a workshop on RNA-Seq (24 and 25 March) and a strategy session for identifying opportunities for collaboration and applications for joint funding (26 March).
You are cordially invited!
There will also be a number of invited talks, with past workshops featuring well known scientists like Magnus Nordborg (Gregor-Mendel Institute of the Austrian Academy), Gunnar Rńtsch (Max-Planck-Institute, ThŘbingen), and Paul Kersey (EMBL–EBI, Cambridge).
Update: Currently confirmed keynote speakers:
JosÚ has been an early adopter of RNA-Seq for the study of polymorphisms and expression profiles in tomato and its wild relatives.
His research group is interested in the natural variation, evolution, and domestication of plants.
Hannes researches modern algorithms for short read alignment, which lie at the core of RNA-Seq data analysis. He has lead the development of SMALT and has made major contributions to SSAHA2. These tools are now widely used in next-generation sequencing applications from RNA-Seq to genomic-resequencing.
In the Flux Project, Micha has developed an approach for capturing the individual steps of the complete RNA-Seq process. This allows modelling the impact of each step on the measurement characteristics.
