Festival of Genomics workshops (19/1/16)

The Festival of Genomics is coming to London! We are offering those in academia a special rate to get involved so that you can stay up-to-date with rapid new technology development and present your work to the leaders in the field. To help you find the most valuable sessions for your work, below is a preview of the content that has been specially crafted for you. Download the brochure to find out more.

Complementing the two main festival days, on the 19th January, there will be fifteen workshops covering… 

Understanding sequencing problems: interpreting QC on large datasets – Gain confidence in the interpretation of your sequencing datasets and learn to use a variety of QC programs to diagnose the most common failure modes for sequencing experiments.

Oxford Nanopore MinION sequencing: data handling, analysis and applications – Through a combination of presentations, demos and hands-on tutorials this workshop will help you to improve both your handling and analysis of MinION data.

Introduction to cancer genomics whole-genome data and its caveats – Planning to apply high-throughput seq to your cancer research? Attend this workshop to get a thorough introduction to the key concepts in cancer genomics, from mutation calling to visualising complex rearrangements in cancer – this is a workshop not to be missed.

The Human Microbiome – Get insight into which human diseases are associated with microbiome alterations and the current state of knowledge regarding the composition and physiology of the ‘healthy’ microbiome.

These workshops have been designed to accompany the Cancer Genomics, Data Analysis and Single Cell Analysis streams depending on your speciality. Each presents critical solutions and updates from leading research organisations like The Francis Crick Institute, EMBL, ICR, The Wellcome Trust and Harvard Medical School. You can view the full schedule here:
