In a nutshell

  • Learn the essential computing skills for NGS bioinformatics
  • Understand NGS analysis algorithms (e.g. read alignment) and data
  • formats Use bioinformatics tools for handling NGS data Perform first
  • downstream analyses for studying genetic variation Compare different
  • approaches for differential expression analysis


The purpose of this intense one week summer course is to get a deep understanding in Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) with a special focus on bioinformatics issues. Advantages and disadvantages of current sequencing technologies and their implications on data analysis will be discovered. You will be trained on understanding NGS data formats and handling potential problems/errors therein.

All students will be enabled to perform important first tasks of NGS data analysis themselves. The layout of the summer school has been adapted to the needs of absolute beginners in the field of NGS bioinformatics and allows scientists with no or little background in computer science to get a first hands-on experience in this new and fast evolving research topic.

In the evenings there will be social events, like a conference dinner, or a guided city tour through Berlin. These are always great networking possibilities for the participants.

Invited Speakers

  • Dr. Ana├»s Le Rhun (MPI for Infection Biology; Emmanuelle Charpentier's group)
  • Dr. Dominic Rose (F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd)
  • Dr. Alexander Ullrich (Robert Koch-Institut)

RNA-Seq Data Analysis Workshop (09 - 12 October 2017 in Leipzig, Germany)

Due to high demand for our '1st Berlin Summer School', we will organize another NGS workshop at 9-12 October 2017. It is the same workshop as the summer school, only without the Variant Calling module and the scientific talks. The workshop will take place in the beautiful city of Leipzig, just one hour by train from Berlin.
