This week-long intensive course for scientists and clinicians covers the basics of computational genomics, while integrating the latest technologies and computational methodologies. University of Illinois faculty teach lectures and lead hands-on lab exercises in a variety of subject areas including genome sequencing and assembly, polymorphism and variant analysis, epigenomics, and data visualization.
Visit the Computational Genomics Course Website for more information regarding the week long program, including the schedule and travel accommodations.
Where will classes be held?
All classes take place at the Carl R. Woese Institute of Genomic Biology (IGB) in the Computer Lab (Room 607).
Remote classrooms are available in Rochester, MN and Jacksonville, FL for the Mayo Clinic participants.
Are there any prerequisite courses or training?
No. This is an introductory course; no previous experience or knowledge of computational genomics is required. We do ask that you are comfortable using a computer.
Do I need to know how to code?
You do not need to know how to code. Most software used in the class has a user-friendly interface.
- Cost: $275
