SCOPE AND TOPICS
Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) methods are revolutionizing genomic and functional-genomics research. However, the manipulation and interpretation of the huge amounts of data produced present significant computational challenges.
To provide an overview of current ultra-high throughput sequencing platforms and introduce NGS data analysis strategies for genomic sequencing, transcriptome analysis ChIP-Seq and other applications, we have organized a workshop with practical sessions.
Topics will include:
The workshop will include seminars to illustrate the theoretical basis of the computational approaches and analysis workflows based on real examples.
Practical sessions will follow, where the participants will use state-of-the art tools for real data analysis.
Workshop Scientific and Organizing Committee
Graziano Pesole, University of Bari and ITB-CNR, Bari (Workshop Chair)
Workshop Secretary and Organization
Angela Evangelista, University of Bari
The number of participants is limited to 80 for the lectures and to 50 for the practical sessions. The registration form is available here.
