Renny attends summer course on NGS

Renny Lee is leaving for two weeks to the Kellog Biological Station, Michigan State University to attend the Bioinformatics Summer Course 2011 on “Analysing Next-Generation Sequencing Data”.

Course’s description:

This intensive two week summer course will introduce attendees with a strong biology background to the practice of analyzing short-read sequencing data from Roche 454, Illumina GA2, ABI SOLiD, Pacific Biosciences, and other next-gen platforms. The first week will introduce students to computational thinking and large-scale data analysis on UNIX platforms. The second week will focus on mapping, assembly, and analysis of short-read data for resequencing, ChIP-seq, and RNAseq.
