Barcelona Summer School in Genomics and Bioinformatics

The course will take place at the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park

I am happy to announce the Barcelona Summer School in Genomics and Bioinformatics, which will take place from September 17th to 21st 2012. The course is organized by Ferran Casals from the IBE and UPF. He has  put together a very interesting program with a great list of speakers and topics. We will participate teaching Cancer Genomics and Functional Annotation of Variants.

If you are interested you can register at http://biologiaevolutiva.org/BSSGB/

I give you further details of the course, list of speakers and program in this post.

 

Course title: “Next Generation Sequencing for Population and Medical Genomics”

From September 17th to September 21th 2012, at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona.

Aim: Next-generation sequencing technologies have revolutionized genomics research. In this course we aim to familiarize the students with the different NGS technologies and their applications to the study of human genetic variation and disease. The course will cover aspects from technology and informatics to experimental design and data analysis. This course is designed to be of interest for master and PhD students preferentially with a background on human genetics. The course will include theoretical and practical sessions.

Number of participants: 25

Confirmed Speakers:

  • Roderic Guigó (Centre for Genomic Regulation)
  • Ivo Gut (Centre Nacional d’Anàlisi Genòmica)
  • Tomàs Marquès-Bonet (Institute of Evolutionary Biology)
  • Núria López-Bigas (Universitat Pompeu Fabra)
  • Chris Tyler-Smith (Welcome Trust Sanger Institute)
  • Yali Xue (Welcome Trust Sanger Institute)
  • Luis Pérez Jurado (Universitat Pompeu Fabra)
  • Arcadi Navarro (Institute of Evolutionary Biology)
  • Cedric Notredame (Centre for Genomic Regulation)
  • Stephan Ossowski (Centre for Genomic Regulation)

Coordinator:
