The Centre for Genome Enabled Biology and Medicine provides a wide range of training opportunities in Bioinformatics.
For current training workshops please check here. These workshops cover a wide range of skills relevant to genomics datasets, including an introduction to Unix, QC of next generation sequencing data, genome assembly and annotation, RNA sequencing for differential expression, variant detection, microbial community analysis and an introduction to R and ggplot2.
The CGEBM have welcomed staff and student delegates from across the UK and Europe.
If you live in or are visiting Aberdeen and are interested in developing skills in bioinformatics, please register for our training courses below or contact CGEBM for more information.
Additionally, CGEBM support training in bioinformatics internationally including at:
- Workshop on Genomics 2014-2019, Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic
- ASM Microbe 2017-2019 Beginning Bioinformatics, Introduction to the Command Line workshop, USA
- Workshop on Microbiome and Transcriptome Analysis 2018, Durban, SA
- ISCD Summer School 2017, Introduction to Sequence Analysis and Algorithms, Roscoff, France
- Workshop on Microbial Genomics 2016, Harvard University, USA
CGEBM was delighted to have been able to send one of our bioinformaticians to support the training of a new generation of bioinformaticians in Africa at the Workshop on Microbiome and Transcriptome Analysis 2018. See the video below for more details!
