Annual Workshop on Prokaryotic Genomics & Bioinformatics
The four-day course provides an introduction to the methods and tools used in functional (meta)genome analysis. The major topics that will be covered include sequencing technologies, genome annotation, comparative genomics, RNA-Seq as well as metagenomics/metatranscriptomics.
The course combines theoretical lessons with computer exercises using state-of-the-art bioinformatics tools. The Goettingen tutorial team will be supported by excellent external lecturers.
The course is designed for postdoctoral scholars, and advanced graduate students. Students with strong interests in the uses of NGS data, annotation, comparative and functional genome analyses, as well as metagenomics/metatranscriptomics are encouraged to apply for attendance.
