Opportunity: Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Bioinformatics course to be hosted at ACE

Deadline: 22nd February 2021

Application Details:


The Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Bioinformatics course will equip participants with the essential informatics skills required to begin analysing NGS data and apply some of the most commonly used tools and resources for sequence data analysis. The course will cover prominent sequencing technologies, algorithmic theory and principles of bioinformatics, with a strong focus on practical computational sessions using sequence analysis techniques and tools applicable to any species or genome size.

This course will apply a blended learning format consisting of locally coordinated classrooms referred to as “remote classrooms”. Please note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most of the local classrooms for this course will run virtually, using Zoom and downloadable virtual machines. There will be 2 online contact sessions per week consisting of both theoretical and practical coursework. Participants will watch pre-recorded videos (theory) followed by a practical exercise during each session. Contact sessions will generally be 4 hours each however the exact format and length of classes will be communicated in due course.
