Contents:
The BiGi center is specialized in the field of Omics data analysis for microbes and is well-known for its software platforms. This de.NBI Spring School will focus on genomics, pangenomics, metagenomics and multi omics analysis. During the training, participants will gain insights into state-of-the-art bioinformatics tools. Participants will be introduced to the genomics workflow and gain an understanding of the possibilities and limitations of genome and metagenomics sequencing as well as sequence and multiomics analysis. The de.NBI Spring School 2024 will cover lectures and hands-on sessions by de.NBI and renowned experts in the field, e.g. from ELIXIR Austria, and is aimed at PhD students, postdoctoral fellows or other scientists with a solid background in bioinformatics and molecular biology.
