About the practical course

This EMBO Practical Course will cover different topics involved in genome studies and their corresponding bioinformatics methodological backgrounds. The main topics of the practical course will cover genome comparisons and NGS data analyses including Methods and tools to analyze Meta-genomic and RNA-seq data.

Topics will include:

  • Genome comparisons,
  • RNAseq and Next Generation Sequencing (including algorithms, methods and sequence mapping tools, data analyses and applications),
  • Integration of genomic and genetic data in the context of Next Generation Sequencing and their applications in human diseases.

The EMBO Pracitcal Course programme will be centered on theoretical presentations followed by practical sessions where the same speaker will ensure theory and practice. Practical sessions in a Linux environment will involve Unix shell and perl scripting. Participants should be familiar with this environment.
