EMBL Course

Analysis and integration of transcriptome and proteome data


Registration is not yet open for this event. If you are interested in receiving more information please register your interest.

Course overview

Systems biology is a still expanding field of research aiming to understand at the molecular level how cells, tissues and organisms operate in their biological context. Among the key technologies driving this forward are next-generation sequencing and proteomics, as they provide powerful means to determine global expression levels of genes and proteins. Both fields have matured to a degree that they have now become accessible to researchers in many areas of biology.

During this course, participants will gain theoretical insight in the structure of sequencing and proteomic data, and they will receive training in data analysis for the annotation, quantification, and statistical analysis of gene and protein expression using various computational tools. In addition, training will be provided in the use of Cytoscape to derive biological insights from the integration of both data types.


This course is targeted at biologists and biochemists who are (starting to be) involved in both next-generation sequencing and mass spectrometry-based proteomics, but who are not experts in these fields.

What past participants say about the course

“An intensive and inspiring course with worldwide top researchers in bioinformatics. Ideal for wet lab scientists who are now starting to work on RNA seq and proteomics analysis” – Marta Furtado, Instituto de Medicina Molecular, Portugal

“In this course, I found lecturers and participants equally willing to share and learn. This, together with the high quality of each lecture and the care of the organisers, contributed to make this week a life-changing experience for me.” – Maria Cristina Petrella, Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG), Spain

EMBL wishes to warn sponsors of EMBL conferences and courses of fraudulent schemes purporting to offer sponsorship opportunities on behalf of EMBL or affiliated with EMBL officials. One current scam campaign of which we are aware is conducted using the name ‘Judy Eastman’ (judy@gopcontact.a2hosted.com) and entails approaches to sponsors offering sponsorship opportunities on EMBL’s behalf. Please be kindly advised that all relevant communication regarding sponsorship of EMBL conferences, symposia and courses is handled by EMBL directly and is sent from an official EMBL account. EMBL does not work with any external providers on sponsorship acquisition.

Please also note that:

  • EMBL never provides attendee lists for purchase. Any offers of such are fraudulent.
  • EMBL will never call or email you to ask for your credit card details or to request a payment.
  • All payments are on invoice.

Suspicious communications purportedly from, for or on behalf of EMBL should be reported to EMBL at the following email address sponsorship@embl.de.
