During these three days the lectures and practical sessions will be dedicated to the exome and complete genome analysis, the use of genetic-based data as well as variant identification in two domains, human genetics and cancer variation. A particular emphasis will be put on practical sessions.
UNIL, Génopode, Aud. 2020
Participants will learn about the genome-wide analysis of variation including GWAS, next generation sequencing (NGS) and how to identify and interpret variants in exomes. The course will also introduce techniques to extend GWAS using NGS data. Furthermore, we strongly encourage you to attend the Symposium on Genomics that will take place just after the end of the course (28 April 2016) in Lausanne.
Day 1: GWAS basics and advanced
After three days of lectures and practical exercises, participants should:
Knowledge / competencies: Participants should have a good understanding of command-line UNIX (UNIX Fundamentals self-learning module) in order to perform the practical exercises.
Free for members of StarOmics, CHF 150.- for academics. Other, please contact us.
CUSO PhD students: through your MyCUSO account. External participants (non-CUSO PhD students, post-docs, etc...): use the icon "registration" at top of page and the last gray box "non-CUSO student" ("personne hors myCUSO").
