The application deadline has passed. Welcome to everyone that is joining this year.
The 2017 Workshop on Genomics is being held from 8-21 January, 2017 in Český Krumlov, Czech Republic. This will be the seventh time the Workshop will be held in Europe.
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 and best practices for sequence data generation, management and analysis. 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 and a map of important locations here or on the Workshop Guide.
Information about lodging options in Cesky Krumlov can be found here.
Detailed information about housing and discounted rates can be viewed here./
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 list of faculty for this year’s workshop is found here and all the instructors are listed here.
