On 21-22 June our group is organizing a course open to all reserachers who share our interest on Genomics. It will be similar to the one we gave at the Gulbenkian Institute last november, but this time we will not be focusing on Cancer Genomics but on Genomics in general, so that we can satisfy a broader audience of scientists. Although it is a course on bioinformatics, we prepared it so that there is no need for a background knowledge on that topic.

Attendees will learn how to handle and analyze genomic data to answer specific questions using tools developed in the Biomedical Genomics lab: IntOGenGitools and Condel. We will deal with questions such as:

  • Which mutations are likely to affect the function of the protein and which are probably neutral?
  • Which of the genes affected by those mutations are already known to be involved in cancer or other diseases?
  • Which pathways or biological processes are affected by the transcriptomic alterations detected in my experiment?

The course will be held in the UPF (Universitat Pompeu Fabra) facilities in the Life and Health Sciences building, next to the PRBB in Barcelona, Spain. For more information on how to register please visit its webpage: Course on Bioinformatics for Integrative Genomics.

We encourage you to register asap if you are considering to come, since the number of places is limited. Please feel free to spread the word amongst your colleagues!
