Are you interested in bioinformatics concepts and analysis?
Apply for the FACE-TO-FACE TRAINING COURSE: INTRODUCTORY BIOINFORMATIC COURSE TO SEQUENCING DATA PROCESSING
Bioinformatics is a must-have skill required in every modern research lab. This course will explore the fundamentals of bioinformatics analysis. The participants will be provided with end-to-end hands-on training, along with an introduction to basic concepts, in using popular tools. Participants will gain an understanding of bioinformatics analysis in the context of aquaculture research. The key learning objectives are for participants to understand the utility of NGS for a range of aquaculture-related objectives and bioinformatics pipelines for NGS data, and to gain knowledge of specific pipelines for RADseq and RNAseq protocols.
The target audience is primarily students and lab researchers who want to be introduced to bioinformatics concepts and analysis. This course is not an advanced course for bioinformatists, but rather a starter course for researchers that want to have a better understanding of their data, gain more insights or to plan experiments better and maximise the analytics output.
Required competence level: basic knowledge of molecular biological methods.
