The 2023 Workshop on Genomics is being held 14-27th of May, 2023 in Český Krumlov, Czech Republic. This is the 12th time the Workshop of Genomics will be held in the Czech Republic, and the second time it will be organised in spring time. Applications are now closed, but we will likely be holding the 2024 Workshop on Genomics in January (7th – 20th January). Please Join Our Newsletter (bottom of this page) to get announcements on future workshops.
Our philosophy is to train participants in the most relevant topics in genomics, in a vibrant, immersive and inclusive environment. The Workshop on Genomics was developed in response to the increasing demand for training on how to effectively analyse and manage data generated by modern sequencing technologies. The Workshop curriculum includes extensive coverage of fundamental techniques required of all studies utilising modern sequencing data. While the Workshop on Genomics 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. genome assembly, genome annotation, transcriptomics, metagenomics, population genomics).
