Bioinformatics 13: Advanced Bioinformatics Workshop for Early Career Researchers
11-15 November 2013, The Univeristy of Adelaide, North Terrace Campus
The Australian Centre for Ancient DNA (ACAD) is pleased to announce Bioinformatics 13: Advanced Bioinformatics Workshop for Early Career Researchers, which will be based on the very successful Bioinformatics 2012 workshop. This workshop is an intensive 5 day hands-on training course tutored by international experts Rob Knight (the University of Colorado), Ludovic Orlando (The University of Copenhagen), Joe Pickrell (Harvard Medical School), and Stephen Bent (The University of Adelaide), utilising the latest available software for the analysis of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Genomics and Metagenomics data. The course combines seminars and 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 a limited opportunity to work on your own dataset with the tutors.
Early registration is essential as seating is limited to 30 places with very strong demand.
Pre-requisites: Delegates must be familiar with UNIX environments and basic command lines, and will require a basic knowledge of the technology and analytical tools of NGS. Some background experience in this field is required.
Registration: now open. Early bird rate closes 31 August 2013.
