The 2024 Workshop on Genomics is being held 7-20th of January, 2024 in Český Krumlov, Czech Republic. This is the 13th time the Workshop of Genomics will be held in the Czech Republic. After two editions of the workshop being held in the spring, the workshop returns to its original winter setting!
Applications are now OPEN!
Apply now! (Deadline: 18th of October, 23:59 CEST)
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 time to techniques being used widely in the field (e.g. genomics study design, genome assembly, genome annotation, alignment, variant calling).
The Workshop registration fee is $1,950. We provide approximately 90 hours of teaching during the two week workshop. Our price is therefore approximately $22 an hour. Note that this amount does not cover travel, lodging or boarding.
Many important details regarding fees and other information can be read on our FAQ page.
Equal Opportunities Funding
Check your elegibility to apply for the equal opportunities bursaries, which may grant you a full coverage of the workshop costs (scheme 1), or the payment of half the registration fee (scheme 2). Read carefully the bursaries information page before applying!
If you apply to the EO funding and select the option to be considered as a standard application as well, your application will move to the main application stream if your EO funding application is unsuccessful. Therefore, you are not required to send two applications. You will be required to obtain your own funds for the main application.
