DNA sequencing technologies are currently developing at an incredible speed and new applications are presented monthly, incl. DNA/RNA profiling, ChIP-seq, re-sequencing, de novo genome sequencing and metagenomics. The aim of this course is to introduce next generation sequencing technologies, highlight different applications of these new technologies, and show ways to analyse data.
Date: April 14-17, 2015
Target audience: This course has been developed for technicians and PhD students who are interested in, planning, or already working with next-generation sequencing. We welcome researchers from both the genomics and bioinformatics fields.
Program: We offer a four-day short-course consisting of a series of lectures on the technologies and applications of next generation sequencing and “hands-on” data analysis practicals, and session on Linux based GAPSS data analysis pipelines. Also see course website.
