ABOUT THE practical course
This EMBO Practical Course will teach advanced methods and applications of computational biology for high throughput data analysis in molecular biology. Its primarily addresses early stage experimental biologists interested in large scale data analysis and computational scientists with previously limited exposure to experimental biology. Practical skills for data analysis will be developed in seven half-day sessions and applied in a joint research project. The course will conclude with a symposium where the speakers of the course will present their scientific research.
Among individual variation of genomes will be covered and linked to clinical and phenotypical data such as cancer types for pathway level analysis. State-of-the art proteomics and small molecule data and their networks will be integrated. Methods will be introduced but the course focuses on question-driven analysis by integrating a multitude of data.
Lectures will provide an update on technologies such as next-generation sequencing and proteomics and downstream analysis for pathways and phenotypic information. Questions are addressed by experienced investigators hands-on.
The concluding symposium will focus on novel research rather than the introductory material of the course work and will be held at the Catholic University in Santiago de Chile.
