Workshop on Genomics

The 2014 Workshop on Genomics is being held from 12-24 January, 2014 in Český Krumlov, Czech Republic.

This will be the fourth time the Workshop will be held in Europe, and the fifth full-length Workshop on Genomics.

The Workshop on Genomics was developed in response to the increasing demand for training on effectively analyzing and managing data generated by modern sequencing technologies.

The first half of the Workshop curriculum includes extensive coverage of fundamental techniques required of all studies utilizing modern sequence data. This includes management and modification of modern sequence data files, using the Unix command-line and editors to manipulate large data files, assembly (both mapping and de novo) and best practices for sequence data generation. The second half of the Workshop is devoted to specific sub-disciplines within the genomic sciences. While these topics may change from Workshop to Workshop, efforts are made to devote significant amounts of time to techniques being used widely in the field (e.g. transcriptomics, genome assembly, metagenomics).
