Annual Workshop on Prokaryotic Genomics & BioinformaticsReview 2018: The 6th International Workshop on Prokaryotic Genomics & Bioinformatics took place from 24-26 July 2018 at the Department of Genomic and Applied Microbiology of the Georg-August University Göttingen.
The three-day course provided an introduction to the methods and tools used in functional (meta)genome analysis. The major topics that were covered included sequencing technologies, genome annotation, comparative genomics, RNA-Seq as well as metagenomics/metatranscriptomics.
The course was designed for beginners with strong interests in all these topics. It combined theoretical lessons with computer exercises using state-of-the-art bioinformatics tools. The Goettingen tutorial team was supported by excellent external lecturers: Dr. Andrea Thürmer from the Robert Koch Institute Berlin and Dr. Jochen Blom from the University of Gießen.
