The advancement of genomics and next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies has revolutionised the biology and field of medicine. With the help of NGS technology we are able to ask difficult questions such as how and when genes are expressed in healthy as well as diseased cells.
Scientists are addressing these questions by concentrating their efforts on measurement of RNA transcripts in entire cell. In parallel to genome, a “transcriptome” refers to whole set of RNAs in a given cell. This course will give introduction to transcriptomics methods and how they have impacted modern biology. This course is designed, taking into consideration our prior success in running transcriptomics workshop in the UK and adapting it according to proficiencies of current students in the workshop, at Central University of Kerala.
