International Workshop on
Prokaryotic Genomics & Bioinformatics 2017
The four-day course provides an introduction to the methods and tools used in functional (meta)genome analysis. The major topics that are covered include sequencing technologies, genome annotation, comparative 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 advanced graduate students and postdoctoral scholars with strong interests in the above mentioned topics. The application deadline is on May 10, 2017.
