With the development and applications of high-throughput sequencing technologies, the study model of human diseases has been gradually shifting from hypothesis-oriented to data-oriented. Such data-oriented, large-scale, industrialized study mode, is taking great advance to study from the genomic level, transcriptomic level as well as the epigenomic level, which makes it possible to advance multi-level research. With the aim to inspire researchers’ innovative ideas and new strategies, the workshop will focus on whole genome resequencing, exome sequencing and personalized target region sequencing technologies, and their applications in human disease research, such as identifying complex disease genotyping and molecular markers, screening drug targets related genes or structural variations. Through epigenomic technologies, you will see the map of whole genome methylation and that of histone /transcription factor binding regions through bisulfite sequencing, MeDIP sequencing and ChIP sequencing, which helps to illustrate the pathogenic mechanisms of epigenetic modification in related diseases.      We are looking forward to you attending BGI’s bioinformatics workshop on diseases.
