The 2020 Workshop on Genomics is being held from 5-18 January, 2020 in Český Krumlov, Czech Republic. This will be the 10th time the Workshop will be held in the Czech Republic.
The Workshop on Genomics was developed in response to the increasing demand for training on how to effectively analyze and manage data generated by modern sequencing technologies. The Workshop curriculum includes extensive coverage of fundamental techniques required of all studies utilizing modern sequence data. The first half of the Workshop focuses on management and modification of modern sequence data files using the Unix command-line and editors to manipulate large data files, best practices for sequence data generation, management and analysis and how to use R to analyze biological data. The second-half of the Workshop is devoted to specific sub-disciplines within the genomic sciences. While these topics may change from year-to-year, efforts are made to devote significant amounts of time to techniques being used widely in the field (e.g. transcriptomics, genome assembly, metagenomics, population genomics).
The Workshop registration fee is $1,800. This amount does not cover travel, lodging or boarding. Many important details about this and other topics can be read on our FAQ page.
A full schedule can be viewed below. Modifications and additions to the schedule may be made at any time prior to the beginning of the Workshop; however, the overall content and structure will remain largely the same.
The Workshop on Genomics is organized by:
Dag Ahren, Lund University
Rayan Chikhi, Institut Pasteur
Sonya Dyhrman, Columbia University
Scott Handley, Washington University
Guy Leonard, University of Exeter
Josephine Paris, University of Exeter
Sophie Shaw, University of Aberdeen
