Who Should Attend
Molecular biologists or data analysts with an interest in Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) data analysis. You should be computer literate and have a basic understanding of molecular biology (DNA, RNA, gene expression, PCR).
Scope and Topics
The goal of this workshop is to give you a deeper understanding of the Next-Generation Sequencing technology with a special focus on bioinformatics issues. All workshop participants will perform important steps of NGS data analysis tasks themselves.
Please see the attached leaflet.
The course will be done using a bootable USB stick containing a Linux environment with all needed NGS tools already installed! After the course you will get the stick with all exercises and results you created during the week. Thus, you can immediately apply what you have learned with your own data by just booting your machine from the stick! Please kindly notice no labwork is to be performed during the course.
Registration fee includes: Workshop materials, Lunches/Coffee breaks, Workshop dinner. Please kindly notice that lodging, travel and other incidental expenses are the responsibility of the attendee.
