Hands-on computational course with applications in precision medicine. he course will cover fundamental topics in computational genomics and its applications in precision medicine. There will be theoretical lectures followed by practical sessions where students directly apply what they have learned. The programming will be mainly done in R and unix. The course will be beneficial for first year computational biology PhD students and experimental biologists who want to begin data analysis or are seeking a better understanding of computational genomics and precision medicine
Students are familiar with fundamentals of computational genomics and are able to do basic analyses.
Some statistics and programming experience will be good to keep up with the course but it is not necessary.
Computational genomics, RNA-seq, SNPs, SVs, ChIP-seq, metagenomics
R, Bioconductor, GATK, Mutect, edgeR, BWA, STAR
