Only 5 spots left!!!

Hello all,

 

The UMD Bioinformatics Core will be offering hands-on Bioinformatics training again this summer. This week long course is perfect for those with little to no bioinformatics experience but whom have a need to learn next-generation data handling methods. The workshop, Bioinformatics Crash Course, was offered last summer and was a huge success. The space is limited to 25 people and filled in two days last year. If you’re interested I recommend registering quickly. For details on the workshop or other bioinformatic needs see the following link. As always feel free to share this with colleagues who may be interested.

The workshop will cover the following and is geared towards beginners:

 

     NGS Sequencing Platforms

     Raw data quality control and processing

     De novo genome assembly

     RNA-seq differential expression analysis

     Transcriptome assembly

     Experimental Design

     Linux and Python training 

     HPC utilization and job submission

 

This hands-on workshop will provide training on the most common aspects of NGS analysis and methodology. Participants should have an understating of general biological concepts but no bioinformatics knowledge is required. The course will begin with an introduction to the command line and using High Performance Computer Clusters (HPCC, DeepThought2). By combining lectures with hands-on examples participants will gain an understanding of the most common bioinformatic workflows and tools. The workshop is held in a computer lab so there is no need for participants to bring a laptop.
