Transcriptomics: Unravelling the Transcriptome

This intermediate-level course explores the concepts of the transcriptome with its technology and addresses how these concepts can help to reveal the genetic architecture of a trait.


Starts 30th May 2024

About This Course

The intermediate-level course is designed to help learners understand various concepts related to transcriptomics. Although it is known that genes play a vital role in diseases, the exact pathways and mechanisms are not well understood. Furthermore, the link between the genome and cellular functioning is yet to be properly explored. This course will provide insight into how transcriptomics along with other omics-based approaches can help to understand the constitution of a cell and how transcriptional activity is linked to various diseases. In doing so, the course explores how RNA transcripts can bridge the gap between genes and cellular functioning. In addition, the course provides an overview of the various scientific and clinical disciplines involved in the subject such as methods to analyse transcriptome, biomarkers and their expression signatures, gene regulation, applications of transcriptomics in drug discovery and development, clinical practice, transcriptome profiling for autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, and other topics. Researchers involved in transcriptomics-based research will likely benefit from the discussion on the commonly used software in transcriptomics, in addition to the overall course content. The course also discusses the career opportunities in this field and the key companies with an interest in transcriptomics research.

Who Is This Course For

This course is created for a wide range of professionals, preferably with a background in bioscience or any associated field, and capable of self-learning. Knowledge of pan-omics technology will be an advantage. Undergraduate or graduates and postgraduate scholars, researchers, academicians such as lecturers and professors, policymakers, and other industry professionals are likely to benefit from this course. Researchers working on transcriptomics will particularly benefit as the course discusses the commonly used software and research papers. The course will be useful for those looking for career opportunities in the field of transcriptomics or omics-based technologies.
