February 26 - June 4, 2014
Given the rapid advances in genomics and bioinformatics that have taken place in the past few years, an intensive review of the major areas of ongoing genome research would be of great value to our fellow National Institutes of Health investigators. To that end, the National Human Genome Research Institute is pleased to once again sponsor the Current Topics in Genome Analysis lecture series.
The series consists of 14 lectures on successive Wednesdays, with a mixture of local and outside speakers covering the major areas of genomics. In this 11th edition of the series, rather than splitting the lectures into "laboratory-based" and "computationally-based" blocks, we have intermingled the lectures by general subject area. We hope that this approach conveys the idea that both laboratory- and computationally-based approaches are necessary in order to do cutting-edge biological research in the future.
The lectures are geared at the level of first year graduate students, are practical in nature, and are intended for a diverse audience. Handouts will be provided for each lecture, and time will be available at the end of each lecture for questions and discussion.
