Aim of the course:
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.

Participants:

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. Currently available technologies, applications, as well as hardware and software solutions will be presented and discussed.

 

Course structure:

We offer a three-day short-course consisting of a series of lectures on the technologies and applications of next generation sequencing and "hands-on" data analysis practicals. Furthermore we offer an additional course day for those partcipants who would like to get more skills in Linux based GAPSS data analysis pipelines. All participants will receive a practical manual containing all used protocols.
