Bioplatforms Australia - Introduction to NGS Data Analysis Workshop

10 May 2017

Course Description

Introduction to NGS Data Analysis is a three-day, hands-on workshop that offers attendees a basic understanding of NGS data analysis workflows. The workshop provides hands-on computational experience in analysis of NGS data using common analytical approaches for ChIP-Seq, RNA-Seq data and Illumina and PacBio de novo genome assembly. This workshop will consist of a mixture of conceptual lectures, methodological lectures and hands-on sessions, as well as group activities.

Target Audience

This workshop is designed for bench scientists, PhD students and early career postdoctoral researchers who require NGS in their research area but have minimal bioinformatics experience. No prior experience with the command line is required, but a familiarity will be useful. Preference will be given to medical researchers from NSW and ACT based organisations.

The workshop fee of $495.00 (plus GST) covers course material computers, lunch and refreshments.


Workshop places are limited due to the significant practical component of this workshop. To manage high demand, all workshop applicants are subject to a selection process and must complete the online application no later than 27th May 2017.
