Registration is now open for the Physalia Winter School in Bioinformatics
Dates: (online) January 16th-20th
This course will introduce participants to the field of Next Generation Sequencing biology, understanding both the concepts and handling of the data. We will cover a broad range of software and analyses from quality assessment of sequencing runs, through assembling and annotating small genomes, RNAseq and differential gene expression, and phylogenomics with NGS data. Primarily focused on Illumina data, we will also look at the different requirements and opportunities when utilising long-read data (Nanopore/PacBio). This course will be accompanied by sessions on the use of Docker, which is the preferred platform for most bioinformatic analyses, as well as software containers, with a particular focus on best practices for reproducibility.
If you do not have prior knowledge of Unix and shell scripting, please have a look at our "UNIX and shell scripting for bioinformatics" course (January, 9th-13th)
In this course, you can learn the most powerful Unix commands and how to connect to external resources/servers, install specialist tools, and ultimately combine commands into scripts for automation and reproducibility.
