We are finalizing the schedule and speaker list. The dates for the Workshop on Genomics in Český Krumlov will be 5-18 January, 2020. The applications will be made available in mid-June with a submission deadline of 15 September, 2019. Please subscribe to our mailing list or follow us on Twitter or Facebook for timely updates and announcements.

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
