Bioinformatics Training

 

These courses aim to familiarise the participants with advanced data analysis methodologies and provide hands-on training on the latest analytical approaches for specific types of biological data.

The analysis of high-throughput sequencing data is the most popular topic, as reflected by the wide range of courses covering this subject (e.g. RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, variation, DNA methylation, whole exome sequencing analysis) but the spectrum of training courses on offer is much wider.
