Large-scale biology projects, such as human genome sequencing and gene expression surveys using RNA-seq, microarrays, and other technologies, have generated a wealth of data for biologists. However, scientists face a challenge in analysing and even accessing these data in order to extract useful information about the system under study. This hands-on course focuses on using existing bioinformatic resources – primarily web-based programmes and databases – to access a wealth of data to answer questions relevant to the average biologist.
