The programme will cover the algorithmic theory and principles of bioinformatics, with a strong focus on practical computational sessions using sequence analysis techniques and tools applicable to any species or genome size. Accompanying the lecture and practical sessions will be a series of seminars by invited speakers, who will highlight their ground-breaking work in applications of next generation sequencing.The hands-on programme will cover several aspects of next generation sequencing data .. continue reading analysis, including lectures, discussions and practical computational sessions covering the following:- Introduction to NGS technologies and tour of Sanger Institute facilities- Introduction to the unix command line- Introduction to scripting for bioinformatics- NGS data formats and tools- Sequence alignment+QC- SNP/indel theory and practical- Structural variation theory and practical- De novo sequence assembly- RNA-seq analysis- ChiP-seq analysis- Sequencing data visualisation with the Integrated Genomics Viewer- Accessing public sequencing repositories- Participant projects and presentations (final day)Please note: The practical sessions will be taught exclusively through Unix/Linux. Therefore, participants are required to have some previous exposure of using the Linux operating system. This will be essential for participants to fully benefit from the course. The course aims to provide a hands-on introduction to bioinformatics for next generation sequencing, and should not be considered a complete education in the theoretical and mathematical foundations of the topics.Limited bursaries are available (up to 50% of the course fee) and are awarded on merit. If you would like to apply for a bursary, please complete the bursary section of the online application form.Application Deadline: 17 June 2016
