Hi Everyone-

We are offering a Fall Workshop in Introductory Bioinformatics

Where/when: University of Maryland College Park, Maryland September 15-18, 2016

The handling of large datasets has become intractable without some level of bioinformatic literacy. Many biologists find that there is a steep learning curve to develop the confidence required to explore their genomics datasets effectively. This bioinformatics short course includes a rich collection of hands-on instruction and lectures specifically intended to help novice users become comfortable with a range of tools currently used to analyze deep sequencing data. There is no prerequisite for this course other than a willingness to learn and to work hard throughout the week. All workshop exercises will be implemented via VirtualBox and focus primarily on Illumina data; however, we will also include PacBio data during the genome assembly tutorial. Course participation is limited to 25 students to ensure an intimate learning environment. Course tuition is $800 and is open to graduate students, postdocs, staff, faculty, and industry researchers on a first come basis.
