Upcoming Conferences

A Global Community

  • ISCB Student Council

    dedicated to facilitating development for students and young researchers

  • Affiliated Groups

    The ISCB Affiliates program is designed to forge links between ISCB and regional non-profit membership groups, centers, institutes and networks that involve researchers from various institutions and/or organizations within a defined geographic region involved in the advancement of bioinformatics. Such groups have regular meetings either in person or online, and an organizing body in the form of a board of directors or steering committee. If you are interested in affiliating your regional membership group, center, institute or network with ISCB, please review these guidelines (.pdf) and submit your application using the online ISCB Affiliated Group Application form. Your exploratory questions to ISCB about the appropriateness of a potential future affiliation are also welcome by Diane E. Kovats, ISCB Executive Director (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

Non-coding RNA data analysis Tutorials


Non-coding RNA (ncRNA) are transcripts not translated into proteins. ncRNA genes include highly abundant and functionally important RNAs such as transfer RNA (tRNA) and ribosomal RNA (rRNA), as well as RNAs such as snoRNAs, microRNAs, siRNAs, snRNAs, exRNAs, piRNAs and the long ncRNAs. The number of ncRNAs encoded within the genomes is unknown, however recent transcriptomics and bioinformatics studies suggest the existence of over twenty thousands such genes. New high throughput sequencing technologies (NGS) have dramaticly changed the scale of ncRNA studies. However the analysis of such data is still in development and significant computational biology knowledge is required for biologically relevant interpretation.

The data analysis of ncRNA is divided into two main directions:

i) discovery of known and unknown ncRNA and

ii) discovery of the target genes of these ncRNAs.

The tutorial will cover both aspects, offering hands-on on ncRNA discovery using real dataset to find known and unknown ncRNA such as miRNA, piRNA, lncRNA etc but also an extensive hands-on on finding potential target genes for miRNA either using databases with pre-calculated targets or run algorithms to search for new target genes. Last is important for participants working on non-model systems where no such databases of pre-calculated targets are available.
