The 6th International Workshop on Prokaryotic Genomics & Bioinformatics will take place from 24 to 26 July 2018 at the Department of Genomic and Applied Microbiology of the Georg-August University Göttingen.
The three-day course provides an introduction to the methods and tools used in functional (meta)genome analysis. The major topics that will be covered include sequencing technologies, genome annotation, comparative genomics, phage genomics, RNA-Seq as well as metagenomics/metatranscriptomics.
The course combines theoretical lessons with computer exercises using state-of-the-art bioinformatics tools. The Goettingen tutorial team will be supported by excellent external lecturers.
The course is designed for beginners in the field of Prokaryotic genomics and bioinformatics. PhD students and postdocs with strong interests in the uses of NGS data, annotation, comparative and functional genome analyses, as well as metagenomics/metatranscriptomics are encouraged to apply for attendance.
