While data processing pipelines in ChipSeq, RNA-seq, exome seq, proteomics and data integration are taught and discussed, the major focus of the workshop is made not at the specific parameter selection but at the downstream biological results: what are experimental caveats of the generating data, how to generate hypothesis based on the data, and how to design experiment based on the computational hypothesis.
The aim is to enrol 30 people, ideally, half of them are biologists interested in bioinformatics and half are bioinformatician interested in better integration with biology. There is a questionnaire to be filled during the registration process to facilitate this task.
Each day, half the time devoted to lectures and half the time devoted to practical session. For practical sessions people are paired up "bioinformatician"+"biologist" and then each day pairs are shuffled.
Candidates will be asked to answer a questionnaire. From them, 15 bioinformaticians and 15 biologist will be selected to participate in the 4 days boot camp stile workshop. Selected canddates will be invoices with a registration fee of $300 which includes assistance to the Workshop, both lunch and coffee breaks during the duration of the same.
All cancellations and requests for registration refunds must be made in writing to Belinda Platzer.
No refunds will be given for non-attendance at the workshop.
