The EMBO Practical Course will teach advanced methods and applications of computational biology for high throughput data analysis in molecular biology. It primarily addresses early stage experimental biologists facing large-scale data analysis and also computational scientists with 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. A symposium where the speakers of the course will present their scientific research will be held shortly before the course.

Among individual variation of genomes will be covered and linked to clinical and phenotypical data in the context of large-scale sequencing in clinical and metagenomics settings. 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.
