There are the last seats available for the online training course "ANALYSIS OF CANCER GENOMES USING R AND BIOINFORMATIC TOOLS"
Dates: 23rd-27th of January 2023
In this course, which has been divided into five segments, you will learn how to process “raw” sequencing reads, and call the three most fundamental types of mutations found in cancer genomes: somatic single nucleotide variants, insertions and deletions, and chromosome copy aberrations. The background, theory, and main tools available will all be covered in the first part of the course. In the final segments you will learn advanced methods for sample quality control and tumour subclonal deconvolution, the task in which somatic variants are used to determine the tumour architecture (i.e., how many clones constitute the cancer) from an evolutionary perspective. Together this course will prepare any would be bioinformatician for further education or employment within a cancer research laboratory.
