Bioinformatics 14: Advanced Bioinformatics Workshop for Early Career Researchers
10 – 14 November, 2014
The University of Adelaide, North Terrace Campus
The Australian Centre for Ancient DNA (ACAD) at the University of Adelaide is pleased to announce its 5th ECR workshop, which will be based on the very successful Bioinformatics workshops of 2012 and 2013. This workshop, kindly sponsored by the Bioinformatics Hub, is an intensive 5 day hands-on training course tutored by international experts (Dan Huson – metagenomics, Ryan Lister – epigenetics, Stephan Schiffels – population genomics and Paul Gardner – genomics), utilising the latest available software (often authored by the tutors) for the analysis of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), genomic, methylome and metagenomic data. The program combines seminars from the leading tutors with extensive hands-on practicals involving the analysis of a range of model and empirical datasets, focusing on current approaches in field-leading groups. There will also be an opportunity to work on your own dataset with the tutors. Early registration is essential as seating is limited to 35 places with very strong demand. Previous workshops have been sold out requiring a waiting list.
Pre-requisites: Delegates must be familiar with UNIX environments and basic command lines, and will require an intermediate knowledge of the technology and analytical tools of NGS.
Hurry last days: Seats still available, closing date 30th October, 2014. For registration details and further information please visit the workshop website here.
