[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he 2015 Workshop on Genomics was held from 11-24 January, 2015 in Český Krumlov, Czech Republic. This was the fifth time the Workshop will be held in Europe, and the sixth full-length Workshop on Genomics. A full schedule can be viewed below.
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. This includes management and modification of modern sequence data files, using the Unix command-line and editors to manipulate large data files, assembly (both mapping and de novo) and best practices for sequence data generation. 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).
The Workshop registration fee is $1800. This amount does not cover travel, lodging or boarding. Many important details about this and other topics can be read on our FAQ page and a map of important locations: Workshop Guide.
The Workshop on Genomics is organized and Co-directed by:
Karin Rengefors, Lund University
